Bergamot Essential Oil EXPRESSED
The aroma of Bergamot uplifts the spirit and emotions and is useful for treating oily and blemished skin. Bergamot essential oil is also helpful with infections of the respiratory system which may include breathing difficulties as well as tonsillitis, bronchitis and tuberculosis. Expressed bergamot oil is obtained by simple pressure from the rind of the fruit, and although various attempts to mechanise the process have been tried, the best oil is still that which is hand-pressed.
The active constituents of bergamot include linalyl acetate, limonene and linalol, and this essential oil is of a delicate green colour.
Bergamot essential oil is used as a flavouring in Earl Grey Tea and when used on the oil burner it will quickly disperse unpleasant odours. Bergamot also works well on the digestive tract and relieves conditions such as painful digestion, dyspepsia, flatulence, colic, indigestion and loss of appetite. Bergamot is also an exceptional intestinal antiseptic, that casts out intestinal parasites and maybe useful to anorexia sufferers by regulating appetite. Bergamot is proven to be effective at clearing cold sores, chicken pox and shingles.
