Benefits of using Bergamot Essential Oil
The fresh and uplifting scent of Bergamot essential oil cannot fail to boost one’s mood. A scientific study has discovered that Bergamot is as effective as diazepam in reducing anxiety. it is capable of lowering cortisol (the stress hormone) levels in the body.
This sunny, invigorating Bergamot Essential Oil is also effective as an antidepressant. It is known to promote cheerfulness and stimulate energy by boosting blood circulation.
Bergamot is especially useful in managing arthritis symptoms and pain. It suppresses inflammation, minimises oxidative stress, provides pain relief and manages anxiety and stress. Create a massage oil for sore, inflamed joints by diluting the essential oil in your favourite carrier oil.
Obese persons tend to be more susceptible to arthritis as excessive fat tissue increases inflammation in the body. Bergamot can also aid in healthy weight loss. It contains the phytochemical naringin, which acts by increasing the action of liver proteins that can reduce fat accumulation in the body, thus helping in weight reduction.
Bergamot Essential oil is antiseptic, anti-microbial, anti-fungal and antibacterial. It can be used to clear up skin infections, fungal infections and to clean wounds. Bergamot Essential Oil also has strong astringent properties that can help to reduce acne scars, skin blemishes and to lighten dark spots. Adding Bergamot oil to your moisturiser will leave skin feeling fresher, tighter and brighter. One caveat is that Bergamot is phototoxic – meaning it can cause skin irritation when exposed to sunlight. Thus it is recommended to use a Bergamot-based product for skin at night and wear sunscreen during the daytime.
