This organic essential oil is produced by cold pressing the crude peel of a pear-shaped citrus fruit which resembles a cross between a grapefruit and an orange. The fruit is inedible and grown especially to produce its fragrant essential oil. Its complex aroma is dominantly citrus but has fruity and sweet tones, with a spicy, warm yet floral quality. Bergamot is a favourite of the perfumery industry for its balancing and harmonising qualities.
The list of complementary oils for blending with Freshskin Beauty’s bergamot organic oil is long: black pepper, cypress, frankincense, geranium, clary sage and vetiver are just a few examples.
