Bergamot

Bergamot

The bergamot tree is cultivated in Italy, mainly to collect this delicately scented essence, made from the zest of the bergamot. It is found in the famous Eau de Cologne. Its subtle, sunny and fruity fragrances are unanimously appreciated. Here, devoid of furocoumarins, it is non-photosensitising.

Ideal for use in home cosmetics, this bergamot essential oil does not contain bergapten, a photosensitising compound of the furocoumarin family. For use in aromatherapy, however, we recommend that you use organic, non-rectified bergamot oil.

With its purifying, balancing and astringent action, this essential oil purifies mixed, oily and acne-prone skin. It regulates the production of sebum in the epidermis and helps to refine the skin texture and dilated pores. In hair care, it promotes the balance of the scalp and will find its place in the care of oily hair or hair with oily roots and dry ends. Integrated into a body massage oil, its fine scent spreads its anti-stress, soothing and harmonising benefits.
