Bergamot is a small evergreen tree of the Rutaceae family, which can grow up to 15 feet high and produces white and strongly perfumed blossoms. The name "Bergamot" is also applied to a variety of plants with bergamot-like fragrance, such as Orange Bergamot (Mentha citrata) and Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa), both of which belong to the Lamiaceae family and are unrelated perennial plants to the Bergamot (Citrus x bergamia). The fruit of Bergamot is medium size and pear in shape at full maturity. Bergamot essential oil is extracted from the yellowish green peel and used commercially to flavor Earl Grey tea and as a component in perfumes.

Bergamot essential oil can minimize the discomfort and hasten the healing of cold sores and other herpes infections, as well as mouth ulcers. It alleviates the pain of shingles and chickenpox, which are also caused by a herpes virus, varicella zoster.

It can heal dry, chapped and irritated skin, making it an excellent choice for relieving symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.

Bergamot essential oil is also useful in treating chronic fatigue syndrome. When used as an inhalant or to create an atmosphere, Bergamot oil can minimize the effect of nicotine and help reduce tobacco smoking.
