Bergamot Oil (FCF Free) - Citrus bergamia (Bergamot) Leaf Oil
Bergamot is an uplifting oil, grown in the foothills of Sicily. It is known as the "happy oil" as it uplifts even the dullest of spirits. Citrus bergamia is a fifteen foot tree with long green leaves and white flowers. The fruit is pitted, resembling a small Orange, but more delicate. Our oil is always FCF free, which means it will not become photo-sensitiive in sunlight, as it is the safest version to use.
Origin - Italy
Extraction - The Bergamot tree is a native of Southern Italy and produces small inedible (due to the sourness) fruits. The fruits ripen from Green to Yellow. When the fruit is nearly ripe, is the best time to harvest the bergamot. The oil is expressed from the nearly ripe leaves.
Notes - A sweet and lemony fresh top note with a warm, floral and balsamic undertone. A favourite for the uplifting and fresh scent and positive mind attributes.
