Put your nose to a bottle of AWO’s Bergamot Essential Oil and you’ll be treated to a delightfully delicate, light, and refreshing aroma – something like oranges and lemons mixed with slight floral overtones. With its wide variety of medicinal powers, Bergamot Essential Oil is considered excellent for both mental and physical equilibrium and healing.
Bergamot Essential Oil is well known for its' calming yet uplifting character, so it can be great for anxiety, depression, nervous tension, and negative emotions in general.
Its antiseptic abilities help combat infection, particularly when used in a sitz bath to fight urinary infections, or in helping to reduce fever. It also acts as a deodorant, a digestive stimulant, and can be added to a base lotion to soothe skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis.
Added bonus – it’s a great insect repellent, plus helps keep pets away from plants.
