Uses and Insights: A citrus, not to be confused with the plant Bee Balm that sometimes goes by the same name. Think of bergamot as lime's softer, smoother, more ethereal cousin. Bergamot is a great staple to have in your essential oil collection. This bergamot, from Calabria, Italy, is the most full-bodied bergamot oil we carry.
Please note: Bergamot is photo-sensitizing to the skin, sometimes even when diluted. Do not use on skin before sun exposure.
