Organic Bergamot Essential Oil – Zongle Therapeutics

Organic Bergamot Essential Oil

Posted by Zongle Therapeutics on



The drinkers of Earl Grey tea are very familiar with the distinct aroma and taste of bergamot oil, because it is this oil that gives the tea its distinct floral accent.

Bergamot is a plant that produces this citrus fruit, also known as Citrus Bergamia. This fruit is a hybrid between sour oranges and lemons. The oil is extracted through the peel of the fruit by means of cold pressing. Many experts support the idea that cold pressing helps to preserve more active compounds in essential oils that may be destroyed by the high heat of steam distillation. 

Oil Profile

The aroma of the Bergamot Essential oil is quite similar to that of orange; however, it has underlying floral accents to it that make it more complex.  Due to its pungent aroma, Bergamot is a popular ingredient used by perfume manufacturers. It has citric base notes and overall quite an amazing scent. It is commonly greenish golden in color and has a thin consistency.

Bergamot was most widely cultivated in Italy. Even the name “Bergamot” originates from the Italian city of Bergamo, where it was originally sold.

Benefits and Uses

Bergamot is a fruit bearing distinct properties. For example, the exclusivity of its original place of production. Also, the fact that Bergamot itself is a bitter fruit that gives sweet oil upon steam distillation or extraction, and its ability to uplift and soothe the surroundings.

     1. Cleanses and Purifies Skin

Bergamot essential oil can be used to reduce appearance of scars and marks on the skin, tone the skin and soothe skin irritations. In order to enjoy the benefits of Bergamot oil, consider using it while bathing. Gently massage it on to your skin and inhale its unique aroma along with the many therapeutic and skin related benefits it provides. Bergaptene is the naturally occurring constituent found in Bergamot Essential Oil that makes the oil phototoxic. Thus, the oil should always be stored in dark bottles in dark places away from sunlight. Exposure to sunlight should even be avoided after it is applied to the skin, at least until it gets absorbed into your skin.

    2. Alleviates Muscular Discomfort

Bergamot oil is a great way to reduce the symptoms of mild sprains, muscle aches and headaches. To soothe muscular discomfort from normal exercise, rub five drops of bergamot oil on sore muscles or where you feel tension. To cover a larger surface area, combine bergamot with a carrier oil like Zongle Therapeutics’ Fractionated Coconut.

    3. Eliminates Odors and Refreshes

Searching for something refreshing and natural? This essential oil is an excellent deodorant. Body odors can be eliminated through Bergamot oil, due to its disinfecting properties and scent that is refreshing. Citrus smells are very powerful and can help overcome many other odors, which is why this oil is also used in room fresheners and sprays.

    4. Promotes a Feeling of Calm

Diffusing this Bergamot Essential oil can help promote a feeling tranquility after a stressful day at work or when you feel emotionally overwhelmed.

    5. Relieves Stress

Many of the citrus essential oils are known for their uplifting properties, but Bergamot is unique with its ability to relieve stress while also creating an environment of calm when diffused.

    6. Adds Flavor to Tea

Earl Grey tea is famous for its combination with Bergamot oil.  With a pure, citrus and spice flavor, Bergamot oil can quickly change a regular cup of tea to Earl Grey with a few simple drops.  Always remember, as essential oils are potent in nature, the trick is the lesser you use, the better it will be.

   7. Maintains a Healthy Metabolic Function

Traditionally, bergamot peels and the whole fruits were used to treat indigestion. Bergamot oil has soothing properties that can help to aid digestion. Gently rub 4 to 5 drops of Bergamot oil on your stomach to help you with indigestion and to regulate appetite.

    8. For Massage and Skincare

Bergamot oil has calming properties that not only beneficial for aromatic diffusion, but also for topical application. Bergamot oil is a masseur’s pick, because of its calming and soothing properties when diffused and its cleansing properties for skin when applied topically. The best form of topical application is by diluting the oil in a carrier oil such as Zongle Therapeutics’ Fractionated Coconut.

Final Thoughts

Bergamot Essential Oil carries a fresh and citrusy scent. The fruit is popular for its skin-replenishing and stress relieving properties. Hence its oil also acts as a skin purifier, stress reliever and helps maintain a healthy metabolic function.

  • I prefer to use this oil because the flavonoids present in bergamot oil are very good relaxants as well. They soothe the nerves and reduce nervous tension, anxiety, and stress.
