Emotional & spiritual benefits
Bergamot has a unique calmative yet uplifting quality. It can cool and refresh emotions whilst decreasing their intensity. It enhances feelings of relaxation at the same time as strengthening the heart and soothing frustrations. 

Cosmetic benefits
With its antiseptic action, Bergamot can be used for oiliness, breakouts and teenage skin. It offers healing properties, so could be included in an aromatherapy first aid kit. It can be added to hair preparations for nourishing the scalp. Due to its calming action on the mind, it may also help where skin irritation is exacerbated by stress and emotional turmoil.

Formulation types
Bergamot is often used in perfumery due to its light, almost floral aroma. It is suitable for cleansing and toning products, creams, soaps, massage oils, moisturising products, calming and balancing essential oil blends and more.

% Use in formulation
