Citrus bergamia is a native from tropical Asia is from the rutaceae family. The peel of the skin of the fruit that is cold pressed.
It is widely cultivated in Calabria , Italy where we import it from. Bergamot from Calibria has always seemed of the highest fragrance
and quality to my senses. The high percentage of the bergapaten component makes this extremely phytotoxic if applied neat onto the
skin and exposed to the sun. I never though that I would offer the bergapaten free essential oil as I usually really prefer the essential
oil untampered with, however to my amazement and delight the bergapeten free is fabulous with the bergaptene content causing photosensitivity
has been removed. This version allows the Bergamot to be used in skin and hair care formulations without concern for photo-toxicity after
exposure to the sun. We are now offering both types that are from Calibria. I still recommend using this essential oil and all others in a
carrier base on the skin. Using this neat if for diffusion and atmospheric extension no matter which one is chosen.
Like attracts like, this potent aromatic essential oil brings in the cheerful energy of the Sun. Like the Sun it is powerful and must be
regarded and employed with respect in its usage. Bergamot is known to assist in regulating and balancing the parasympathetic and sympathetic
