Botanical Name: Citrus bergamia
Commonly known as the distinctive flavor in Earl Grey tea.  It has been used as a insect repellent, but if you don’t use it and you get bit by an insect, use it on the bite site.  Can be applied to forhead and temples to reduce anxiety, tension, stress, insomnia and depression.  May help respiratory infections such as cough, bronchitis, and tonsilitis.  Bergamot has fragrant mood lifting qualities.  Try mixing with Lavender and using as a naturaly deodorant.  May cause photosensitivity on skin when in sunlight.
Blends well with lavender, chamomile, Coriander, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Juniper, Lemon, Marjoram, Neroli, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang
