Bergamot essential oil is expressed from the peel of the nearly ripe Bergamot fruit. It has a citrussy, sweet aroma, with orange-lemon top notes and floral undertones. 
 
Bergamot is one of the most useful aromatherapy oils and is often labelled as 'nature's prozac' by many aromatherapists, as it is particularly beneficial for treating anxiety and depression.

NOTE: 
Bergaptene free or Furocoumarin free Bergamot (FCF) is safer to use for sensitive skin and reduces the skin's susceptibility to photosensitizing. Even when the ingredient Bergaptene (Furocoumarin) is removed from the oil and phototoxicity minimized, it is still advisable to keep treated skin out of the sun, and to use it in concentrations of less than 1%.
