I love Bergamot oil!
This is a very ‘happy’ oil – one of the best mood lifters in the aromatherapy kingdom.
Historically used for solders in WW1 suffering from shell shock it was found to be beneficial in treating the condition now known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
This oil is generally available in shops and inexpensive.
Citrus oils tend to be photo toxic which means that if you put it on your skin then go out into the sun skin will BURN!! In the 1980’s bergamot was used in sun creams to make the skin go brown quicker and this was stopped due to the danger of burning which can lead to skin cancer.
Use this oil on a tissue and put into your room. The oil is quite volatile so it will evaporate easily into the air and you will breathe it in.
Use this oil for a pick me up, for meditation and to ‘lift’ the mood of a room.
Excellent for nervous tension and stress of any kind.
