Bergamot oil has been used for centuries in perfumes and confections. It is extracted from the almost ripe peel of the fruit. The aroma is a fresh and clean complex citrus that is tangy green with a slightly floral and spicy odor.
It helps promote clarity in the workplace and can calm agitated children. It helps reduce melancholy and sluggishness. Try sprinkling a few drops of Bergamot with Lemongrass in a moody teenagers’ room about 30 minutes before you want them to rise.. it’ll be a different day for you and for them!
