Bergamot Essential Oil Recipes

Bergamot essential oil is famous for its spicy, citrusy aroma, which is also the trademark flavor of Earl Grey tea. The oil is extracted from the rind of the bergamot fruit, which is a type of citrus. In addition to its delicious fragrance, research also indicates that bergamot oil can help reduce feelings of depression, anxiety, and stress.

Furthermore, participants in the studies saw a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure, indicating that the oil offers a physiologically calming effect as well.

Using Bergamot Essential Oil Blends - Precautions

Even when using these bergamot essential oil blend recipes in your diffuser, there are still a few precautions to keep in mind. First, if you have any pets in the house it is better to use a passive diffuser rather than an active diffuser. This is because when the active diffuser mists, oils travel with the droplets. They can then land on your animal's coat, which they lick while grooming. Additionally, some of these oils contain natural components such as limonene, which is an organic part of many plants. However, limonene is also a known allergen, and some people find it causes irritation. If you, or anyone else in your household, feels any signs of discomfort while using these bergamot oil diffuser blends, it is best to stop use. 


These are just a few of the many bergamot diffuser recipes you can create with different combinations of essential oils. Bergamot is extremely versatile, with its bright, feel-good fragrance and wide availability.
