Extracted from the fruit of a small tree, this sweet-smelling oil is great for toning, cleansing and gently antiseptic. It soothes skin irritations, minimizes the look of scars and other marks on the skin, and also helps even out skin tone by influencing melanin production.
Also known as citrus aurantium bergamia, bergamot oil comes from the peel of the bergamot fruit. Widely grown in Lombardy, Italy, this exotic fruit is actually a type of orange, just with a more lemon-y yellow rind.
Packed with flavonoids that soothe and calm skin, bergamot essential oil is perfect for nourishing a tired complexion. Not to mention, the lively citrus scent is divine. It’s hard not to fall in love with the intoxicating aroma the moment you smell it.
There are plenty of essential oil enthusiasts who place bergamot oil in their top choices for aromatherapy, as a flavoring in their favorite drink or a key ingredient in their skincare blend. We know it can be hard to pick a favorite, but bergamot oil can give you a lot of reasons to include it in your daily skincare routine.
But bergamot’s calming scent isn’t the only thing the ingredient is lauded for: It’s got antibacterial and astringent properties, which means it can be used to unclog pores and balance sebum levels. It also works as an anti-inflammatory, which means pimples don’t stand a chance against it. Bergamot can even be effective to spot treat blemishes, acne, and painful cysts and pimples due to its analgesic qualities.
Bergamot can also help revitalize your skin, reducing the signs of premature aging and keeping you looking youthful and vibrant. Packed full of antioxidants, bergamot oil is the ultimate ingredient to keep free radicals (the number one culprit of premature skin aging) at bay.
If you want to heal your skin and reduce the appearance of unsightly blemishes, bergamot oil may be the right choice for you. Whether it’s acne, scars, blemishes or pigmentation, bergamot oil tones and soothes your complexion so you can look and feel your best.
Worried about clogged pores and toxins? Thanks to its antibacterial properties, bergamot oil is a natural cleanser. It’s particularly good for oily skin, helping to unclog pores and balance sebum levels. Environmental toxins can prematurely age your skin. They may contribute to wrinkles, age spots, and uneven color. But bergamot oil can help purge these toxins, helping your skin stay healthy.
Do you suffer from puffy, inflamed skin? Fear not! In 2012, a study published in the Journal Of Essential Oil Research examined the biological properties, and the cosmetic and medical uses of bergamot oil. In vitro studies concluded that bergamot oil showed significant anti-inflammatory activity. The authors believe this may be related to the presence of citropten and bergapten in the oil.
The same study provides evidence that bergamot oil shows activity against several Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria as well as fungi and yeasts. It appears that flavonoid extracts of C. bergamia peel possess a strong antimicrobial activity on numerous bacteria and yeasts and this indicates that bergamot oil can potentially be used as a topical treatment for dermatophytosis (fungal infection).
