Meet Uplifting Bergamot

Citrus-y with a floral, herbaceous undertone, bergamot essential oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of the Citrus bergamia fruit. Bergamot essential oil has an uplifting effect on the mood and is calming to the spirit, making it a perfect choice for diffusion blends and body care alike (just be sure to use the bergaptene-free bergamot oil for topical application).


Where does Bergamot Essential Oil Come From

Aura Cacia Bergamot Essential Oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of the bergamot orange grown in Italy.


What is Bergaptene-Free Bergamot Oil?

Bergaptene is a constituent found in bergamot oil that is photosensitizing- meaning it increases our skin's sensitivity to sunlight. Aura Cacia Bergaptene-Free Bergamot Essential Oil undergoes a second distillation process to remove the bergaptene to make it safe for topical application when properly diluted.


You Know, We Make a Great Pair

Bergamot essential oil blends wonderfully with other citruses, such as sweet orange, or herbaceous and resinous oils like rosemary, geranium, and frankincense.
