Aromatherapy Properties: (Uses) Regular Bergamot is a photosensitizer (increases the skin reaction to sunlight and makes it more likely to burn). Our Bergaptene-free Bergamot has had the chemical bergaptene removed and this greatly reduces the risk of photosensitization when exposed to the sun after use. We recommend this product for use in end products that will be used directly on the skin and which will remain on the skin for a long period of time. 

Blends well with: Chamomile Blue, Lavender 40/42, Neroli, and Rosemary

History: The name Bergamot is derived from the city Bergamot in Lombardy where the oil was first sold. This tree is native to South East Asia but was introduced to Europe, and particularly Italy, but is also found in the Ivory Coast, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria.
