Bergamot Essential Oil – Citrus bergamia – is 100% pure oil. The method of extraction is by cold pressing the rinds of the Bergamot fruit. The Bergamot orange is yellow/green in colour, grown and processed on the undulating slopes of Sicily and Reggio di Calabria, Italy on the shores of the Mediterranean.
The rind of the fruit gives off a citrus/spicy aroma – a little like a cross between orange and grapefruit.

Try in a shower after a hard day’s work or sprinkled in a relaxing bath.
