Bergamot Essential OilArOmis
ArOmis’ bergamot oil is steam-distilled from the fruit of the bergamot tree (Citrus bergamia). You’ll recognize bergamot’s tart, orange-like smell because the trees are in the orange family. Aromatically, bergamot fruit is quite tart, but its oil exudes a warm, spicy-sweet scent. Tea drinkers will likely recognize bergamot as the main ingredient which gives Earl Grey tea its unique flavor and aroma.
Like other essential oils in the orange family, bergamot has been used as a fragrance for hundreds of years. The soothing and pleasant aroma of bergamot makes it a great choice for DIY cleaners or as a diffuser scent in any type of space.
