Benefits for health

The three main areas in which this Bergamot essential oil is uniquely valuable are: urinary tract infection, depression and anxiety, and skin care. Let have a look at them:

  • For depression, anxiety and mental conditions, Bergamot is the most recommended essential oil, and is best used in a massage oil. You can also use it in bath or in a diffuser to perfume a room.
  • For urinary tract infection such as treating cystitis and urethritis, Bergamot oil is one of the best (along with Camomile). It can often prevent the infection from spreading when used at the beginning of the infection. It is also a good remedy for the relief of vaginal pruritis and mild vaginal discharges.
  • This essential oil will do well for people suffering from recurrent attacks of cystitis, as it also relieves from tension and anxiety, which are often a cause of the cystitis. For recurring attacks, Bergamote is better than Camomile.
  • For skin care, antiseptic properties of Bergamot oil make it useful in treating acne, oily skins and all infected skin conditions. It is powerful to fight Herpes simplex 1 virus, which causes cold sores.
  • If you do not have other oils available, or if you do not want to buy multiple oils, it is also good to know that Bergamot can be used in treating respiratory and digestive problems. Yet, there are several others oils which are more efficient in these areas. Therefore, it is best to keep Bergamot for the special uses in which it is best (urinary tract infection, depression and anxiety, and skin care).

Safety / contraindications

  • Non-toxic
  • Relatively non-irritant (1 to 2 drops on the wrist as a perfume will be harmless). However, if your skin is sensitive, we recommend you to use Bergamot diluted in a carrier oil.
  • Bergamot increases the skin's sensitivity to sunlight. Therefore, it is recommended not to use Bergamot in massage oils, bath oils or skin preparations during sunny weather. Especially as this photosensitizing effect lasts for several days after application.
