Essential Oil - Bergamot

(Citrus bergamia) 

uplifting, clarifying

Smelling pure bergamot oil is one of the great joys of aromatherapy. Its scent is so fresh, and clear, and elevating... it's no wonder it is used mainly for its antidepressant properties.

Many clinical studies have been done on the effectiveness of bergamot to treat depression, where it has proven to be greatly beneficial. It has also been shown to restore lost appetite, particularly when depression-related.

Esthetically it is beneficial for acne, oily skin, and dull, sluggish complexions.
