  •           Bergamot "FCF" grade is a cold pressed then distilled bergamot peel oil. By steam distilling the oil, some of the benefits are reduced but it has virtually all bergaptene removed. Furocoumarins are not 100% removed but the content is so low it can be classified as Furocoumarin Free (FCF) and safe for use on the skin outdoors.

  •           Cold pressed bergamot contains the furocoumarin Bergaptene which can be photosensitizing and cause a reaction on the skin when exposed to sunlight. A typical reaction would be increased risk of sunburn. Normal cold pressed Bergamot is not ideal for blends that are intended to be worn outside in the daytime such as facial/cosmetic blends.

  •           Bergamot is energizing yet relaxing. It is a popular addition in formulas to treat stress, anxiety, nervousness and depression.

          Bergamot is high on the list of most potent antiviral and antifungal essential oils. It speeds healing and stimulates the immune system to fight infection. It is used in skin treatments for abscesses, acne, boils, cold sores, eczema, herpes sores, oily skin and insect bites. It reduces fever and stimulates production of white blood cells and improves the integrity of red blood cells. It can be vaporized into the air to help treat colds, fevers, respiratory tract infections and sore throats. Blended with Tea Tree essential oil it is very effective when applied to Shingles, Chicken Pox or Herpes type sores.
          Sleeplessness is a very common complaint among many people and over the counter sleeping pills commonly leave a person still feeling sleepy long into the next day, not to mention, it is not only adults with this problem any many parents don’t like the idea of raising children on sedatives. In this case a light approach is best. Bergamot has a very mild relaxing and uplifting quality that can help you to feel sleepy. It also improves the quality of sleep so you don’t keep waking during the night. It can be sprayed into the room, diffused, vaporized or massaged in before bedtime. You can increase the effectiveness by blending with Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Valerian Root or others.
          Bergamot stimulates the production of digestive juices. Rubbed on the abdomen in a clockwise pattern, it can be used as a treatment for common digestive disorders such as loss of appetite, colic, indigestion and flatulence. Its uplifting quality makes it a good choice in cases of appetite loss due to stress and anorexia.
