Bergamot Essential Oil
Its place of origin is debated, from Southeast Asia to Europe to Greece, but the oil has long been used as a pick-me-up when people are plagued with tension, stress, or low moods.
This oil comes from the peel of the fruit of the bergamot tree when the fruit is cold pressed. Because of its citrus but spicy aroma, it’s often used in perfumes and other cosmetic applications.
