Active Ingredient | Bergamot April 07 2016

Have you ever enjoyed a beautiful cup of Earl Grey tea in the morning and wondered what exactly gives it that distinct citrus scent? It happens to be Bergamot essential oil and is one of our favourites to use in our aromatherapy blends!  

Derived from the rind of the Bergamot orange, this essential oil naturally relaxes the senses and uplifts the spirit. Its invigorating scent works as a natural antidepressant, relieving tension to unfold a greater sense of joy and harmony in one's life. 

When it comes to skincare, we like to include Bergamot oil in acne masks and serums for it's ability to reduce oiliness and balance skin. Use it in a honey, yogurt and tea tree acne mask for oily complexions. It's commonly used in skin care and massage oils for it's potent antiseptic properties.

You can find Bergamot essential oil in our Uplift Therapeutic Roll-on, Calm Down Therapeutic Roll-on,  Moisturizing Cleanser + Makeup Remover. At our skincare clinic, we also offer Custom Face Serums and Custom Facial Treatments where we often include this powerful essential oil.

Whether you chose to include the uplifting scent of Bergamot in your daily routine by sipping on a cup of Earl Grey Tea, or by keeping an aromatherapy roll-on at your side, it will be a great addition to have in your life to simply enhance joy and relaxation.
