10 ml

Botanical source: Citrus x bergamia, bergamot orange
Plant part used: The rind
Origin: Calabria, Italy
Production: Cultivated and certified organic
Extraction method: Cold expression of the somewhat green bergamot fruits between December and March

Note: Bergamot oil is one of the few true hybrid oils of the materia aromatica. At some point in the past, possibly during the 10th century in Sicily, this citrus varietal was hybridized from the bitter orange and the sweet lime.

Fragrance profile: Our organic Bergamot oil beautifully delivers the same complex notes as its two parent plants. On one hand the smooth, fullbodied sweet citrus notes of the bitter orange peel; on the other hand, the fizzy, tangy acidic notes of sweet lime peel. The seamless interplay of these two notes is what creates the true Bergamot signature fragrance.

Fragrance energy: Lemony-sweet

Properties: Balancing, uplifting and gently warming

Chinese medicine function: To regulate the Qi, settle the Heart and harmonize the spirit

Pharmacology: High in esters (<57%), Bergamot oil isdominated by linalyl acetate, which has shown to be protective of nerve cells and generally balancing to the nervous system. The oil's chemistry itself is well balanced by relaxant monoterpenols and stimulant monoterpenes. These three compounds contribute to making Bergamot one of the few true regulating and balancing oils at our disposal. It is bivalently able to relax in tense conditions, and stimulate in weak conditions.

Complementary blending: Lavender, Grapefruit, Lemon, Coriander leaf, Neroli, Grand fir, May chang, Lemongrass, Juniper, Jasmine absolute, Roman camomile, Coriander seed, Helichryum

Caution: Bergamot increases skin photosensitivity: avoid any exposure to sunlight, including sunbed tanning, for at least 20 hours after applying Bergamot oil on the skin.


For external use only. Properly dilute all essential oils in lotion or vegetable carrier oil before massage or other topical use. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, have any health conditions, or are taking medications, please consult your healthcare provider prior to using essential oils.

    Pure Bergamot oil

    Posted by Mary on Sep 27th 2017

    I am still experimenting with and getting to know essential oils. After taking a workshop on healing trauma with the 5 Spirits, I was directed to purchase Bergamot oil to help some of the veterans I work with in my acupuncture practice. I know Snow Lotus oils to be pure and the highest quality available. I also feel that Peter knows his product and his knowledge of acupuncture has an added benefit for me.

    I haven't had bergamot for awhile but this is what I remember the smell to be. Fair size fair price organic quality sourced consciously. What's not to like?!
