Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)
Named after the southern Italian city of Bergamot where first cultivated, the Bergamot tree produces a small round yellow citrus fruit when ripe. Extracted from the peel by cold pressing, Bergamot oil boasts a light and refreshing, spicy citrus scent.
It’s known to aid digestion and relax the nervous system. With its antiseptic properties, it’s also used to treat skin infections such as acne and eczema. For many years, people have used Bergamot to remedy fevers, including malaria and urinary tract infections.
