Bergamot Essential Oil
Known as the “prince of citrus”, bergamot has a beautifully simple, yet complex aroma. Bergamot is a fruit most commonly known for its essential oil used in aromatherapy to minimize symptoms of stress-induced anxiety and mild mood disorders.
Bergamot essential oil is basically citrus, yet fruity and sweet with a warm spicy floral quality, and is reminiscent of Neroli, giving a middle note of medium strength.
