Citrus bergamia (Bergamot) essential oil. This clear oil has a dry, floral, citrus aroma, and is taken from the peel. It has both a soothing and uplifting effect, as well as being gently antiseptic. Bergamot derives its name from the Italian town of Bergamo where the fruit essence was first sold. Being antiseptic and wound healing, Bergamot oil is useful for cleansing and toning skin as well as helping to clear and heal irritations.
