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. As a digestive aid, Bergamot essential oil calms stomach cramps and regulates the appetite, either stimulating or suppressing it as needed. 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. Bergamot essential oil fights fatigue from stress, helps restore physical and emotional strength, and is useful for restoring immunity in a person convalescing from a long illness.

Bergamot essential oil has a distinctive citrus scent that is similar to orange oil but smells far less sweet. It has lemon-fresh top notes and warm, floral, balsamic undertones.

The fragrance is refreshing and uplifting. It acts as a stimulant and tonic to balance the emotions and nerves. It relieves feelings of fear, anxiety and panic.
