Bergamot – Citrus bergamia
‘It has a very sweet, light, tangy, citrusy aroma.
Traditionally used to calm nerves, it is naturally antibiotic and a disinfectant. It blends well with Black Pepper and Rosemary to freshen up any home or work space this spring.’
Bergamot and rosemary essential oils are available for purchase at the Guelph Farmers’ Market, Saturdays, 7 am – noon. Please contact me to special order black pepper.
Please consult an essential oil book or other professional reference source for suggested uses & dilution ratios. Citrus essential oils are photosensitive – may cause skin pigmentation if skin is exposed to sunlight or other ultra-violet light.
