Bergamot is a clean, relaxing yet refreshing and uplifting oil. I use it in my clinic for treating low mood, anxiety, negativity, frustration, unexpressed anger, inflexibility and repressed emotion. I also use it with people who have psoriasis and acne.
It blends well with mandarin to address stress, with lemongrass for fever, niaouli and peppermint for shingles & other viral conditions. It is used with tea tree and lavender for cold sores.

Avoid use if:
- sunbathing after applying to skin; phototoxic, accelerates sunburn & may cause skin cancer
- caution with sensitive skin

Bergamot is considered a regulating oil so may be useful for people who live with ADHD and bipolar disorder.
It is was used in Italian folk medicine to treat fever and worms and is one of the most popular oils used in the perfume industry.
