One essential oil that is highly regarded for its skin care properties is bergamot. The green, crisp, tangy fruit offers an aromatically pleasing citrus note with a faintly bitter overtone. The botanical originates in Italy and other small areas. It is the primary flavor in Earl Grey tea and is a commonly used essential oil in the perfume industry. The aroma of bergamot is uplifting and helps to build or maintain personal confidence. When purchasing bergamot, opt for a bergapten-free essential oil; the chemical constituent that causes sensitivity to sunlight. Basic Earth Essentials only carries bergapten-free oils.
