Bergamot essential oil is a hybrid of bitter orange and lemon, a very popular fragrance for skincare. Bergamot removes the desires involved in addictive and nonproductive behavior. It alsoÂ has been used historically to reduce cold sores, fevers, anorexia, gingivitis,sore throats, cystitis, colic, dry and oily skin. Bergamot affects the liver beneficially . affecting blood sugar balance, cholesterol and triglycerides usage. In natural perfumes, Bergamot is a preferred top note to define the blend and lure the recipient to wear the aroma blend. Bergamot blends well with all citrus, floral and herbals and spices. I use it to lift heavy woody aromas,such as Cabreuva and Cedar.
