Bergamot - Pure Essential Oil
Citrus bergamia, the bergamot orange, is a fragrant citrus fruit the size of an orange, with a yellow or green colour similar to a lime, depending on ripeness. It is likely a hybrid of lemon and bitter orange. The essential oil extracted from its peel is the traditional flavouring of Earl Grey tea.
The oil is a thin, light yellowish-green to yellowish-brown liquid. The scent is basically citrus, yet fruity and sweet, with a warm spicy floral quality.
It is traditionally used in aromatherapy to help relieve cold and flu symptoms, and for balancing and calming the mind, and boosting mood and confidence.
In perfumery, it is one of the most important top notes. It can make a perfume feel more sophisticated and harmonize all other ingredients. A touch in unexpected places can lift other ingredients to the top of the perfume.
It blends well with black pepper, clary sage, cypress, frankincense, geranium, jasmine, mandarin, nutmeg, orange, rosemary, sandalwood, vetiver and ylang-ylang.
Characteristics: fruity, sweet
Subsidiary notes and nuances: spicy, floral
