Note: oils extracted from bark, resins, roots of trees or plants will NOT work with a nebulizer because these oils are too thick and will cause clogging. Therefore, for inhalation, use these thicker essential oils ONLY with a diffuser. Read our FAQ page for the list of essential oils which are not recommended to use with a nebulizer.
Bergamot oil comes from the peel of a citrus fruit; it shares a similar scent-profile with oranges and lemons. Used in a nebulizer, it is zingy, refreshing and a powerful anti-depressant. It’s also ideal as a stress-relieving, anxiety-reducing oil when inhaled this way, and it gently encourages sleep when used before bedtime.
Other significant properties of Bergamot include balancing the body’s metabolism, which, in turn, stimulates hormones and the digestive system. This leads to a myriad of benefits; for example, if the digestion and hormones such as insulin are in balance, glucose can be metabolized effectively and nutrition from food accessed more successfully. Furthermore, its re-energizing effects can improve blood circulation. This versatile oil also mixes well with many other oils and the wonderful fragrance promotes a feeling of tranquility.
To reduce congestion from colds: use in your nebulizer or rub a few drops of the oil onto the palms of your hands and inhale.
Muscle tension: add a few drops of Bergamot oil to a carrier oil or unscented moisturizing lotion and massage into tense or aching muscles.
Antibacterial: add one or two drops to your deodorant to inhibit odors caused by bacteria. You can also add a few drops of the oil to a bath to combat bacteria that could cause UTIs.
Antifungal: add a drop or two to a neutral carrier oil to massage onto areas affected by fungal infections.
Please Note: our Bergamot oil is safe to be applied to the skin before sun exposure as it’s Bergapten-free. Regular Bergamot (which contains Bergapten) is NOT safe to apply onto skin before sun exposure. For more information, please check the Safety Considerations section.
As an ingredient in various commercially prepared foods such as Earl Grey teas and marmalade, Bergamot oil is perfectly safe when used by the drop.
Insect repellent: add a few drops to some water in a spray bottle to use around the home.
Oil Specific: unlike the regular Bergamot or all other citrus oils, this doesn't create photo-sensitivity, so it may be used before exposure to sun, ultraviolet or infrared light.
General: keep out of reach of children and pets. Not for internal use unless taken under the supervision or recommendation of an aromatherapist professional. Do not use undiluted on the skin, eyes, or mucous membranes; it could cause allergic reactions. Always test first on a small portion of your skin. If you are pregnant, consult with a health care provider/ professional experienced with essential oils as some essential oil are less tolerated while others are well loved by pregnant women.
Storage and Handling: the shelf life of ESSENTIAL OILS is usually around 1 year after they're opened, and up to 2 years when unopened. All essential oils oxidize and are subject to lose their therapeutic value and aromatic quality in time. Essential oils benefit from proper storage and handling. Avoid keeping essential oils in a location that is prone to sudden temperature changes such as the bathroom or kitchen. Store them in a cool, dark place, away from heat and light.
