Bergamot Essential Oil

The scent of Bergamot essential oil is rich, with a fruity top note, followed by a herb-like and balsamic scent. The color of the oil fades as it exposed to air, and particularly light. It eventually turns yellow or pale olive-brown. Bergamot essential oil is cold pressed from the peel of the bergamot fruit.

The Aromatherapy Place offers a variety of Bergamot essential oils to suit your preference. Over time, treat yourself to a special sensual experience by trying and comparing the qualities of each.

There are slight variations in odor, color, and the levels of constituents within each oil. However, the oils are similar and can be used in place of one another.

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural, therapeutic grade Bergamot essential oil from The Aromatherapy Place: Some dishonest Companies combine botanical species to create a cheaper version of an essential oil. As an example, the most common Lavender type comes from Lavadula angustifolia. There is also a cheaper version which comes from Lavandula X inTermedia. The two oils are combined, unbeknownst to you, resulting in a cheaper version of Lavender. Auroma guarantees the botanical species origin for each essential oil through testing and analysis, and states it on their product label so quality and origin are always assured.
