New York Biology Bergamot Essential Oil

Continuing with the series I've been working on for New York Biology's Essential Oil collection, THIS post will be focusing on Bergamot oil.

Bergamot is an oil that has a sweet and uplifting citrus-y scent. I'd never actually tried Bergamot before, as I tend to stay away from strong citrus smells, however, the aroma isn't actually that bad! It's noticeable in a pleasant way, but isn't overwhelming.

Being as I'd never been adventurous enough to try Bergamot oil before receiving this bottle, I did some research to find out what sort of benefits it hold.

Some of the benefits are as follows:

  • Works well as an antidepressant
  • Has uplifting properties that also help to reduce anxiety and stress
  • Can be used to help treat insomnia (I always LOVE oils that help with that!)
  • Helps to relieve congestion and other respiratory issues
  • Has antibiotic properties
  • Because of the antibiotic properties, it can be used for things like urinary tract infections. 

There are a host of other benefits too, of course, which is why I'm honestly kicking myself for not introducing Bergamot to my oil collection sooner!

One thing that should be noted is that most Bergamot oils contain an ingredient called bergaptene, which becomes poisonous if exposed to sunlight, and causes photo-sensitivity. New York Biology's Bergamot oil (which you can find on Amazon) doesn't have this ingredient, which makes it even safer to use.

I received this oil free in exchange for my honest review, and I'm so glad that I did! If you're just joining this series, and curious about some of the other oils I've discussed so far, you can check out the list below!
The next oil that I'll be discussing in this series is Frankincense, so stay tuned!
