Bergamot is a type of bitter orange with greenish-yellow skin. Its pulp is too sour to eat, so this uplifting, fruit yielding plant is grown purely for the extraction of essential oil from its peel.
Bergamot has been used in perfumery formulations going back to the sixteenth century. The refreshing and strong citrus fragrance is also used to flavour Earl Grey tea.
Mostly used in aromatherapy for its cheering and uplifting qualities, Bergamot is a versatile oil which can also be used in a host of beauty blends and products for the home.
