Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot Essential Oil

Smelling pure bergamot oil is one of the great joys of aromatherapy. Its scent is so fresh, and clear, and elevating... it's no wonder it is used mainly for its antidepressant properties.

Many clinical studies have been done on the effectiveness of bergamot to treat depression, where it has proven to be greatly beneficial. It has also been shown to restore lost appetite, particularly when depression-related.

Esthetically it is beneficial for acne, oily skin, and dull, sluggish complexions.

EOX's bergamot is my favorite oil. It is like instant happiness in a bottle. I can't diffuse it and be/stay in a bad mood.

This has become on of my favorite EOs. It has a light, almost floral scent rather than citrusy scent, and almost instantly boosts my mood.
