Organic Bergamot Essential Oil, FCF

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Our Organic Bergamot Essential Oil FCF is cold pressed from the rinds of Citrus bergamia, a citrus fruit that is loved for its beautiful, fragrant aroma and for its numerous benefits in skincare, balancing the emotions and supporting general wellbeing. As with all of our organic ingredients, it is certified organic by CCOF. It possesses a lovely light, fresh, floral citrus aroma that is uplifting, rejuvenating, and balancing. Although lemon, lime and grapefruit essential oils are considered energizing essential oils that are best avoided before bedtime, Bergamot Essential Oil is much more relaxing and calming due to its impressive content of the ester Linalyl Acetate. Organic Bergamot Essential Oil FCF is a wonderful oil to include in formulations intended to uplift the spirits, promote happiness and reduce stress and negative emotions. It also helps to alleviate fatigue.

Bergamot Oil is what gives Earl Grey Tea its distinctive flavor. Aromatically, if you like Orange Essential Oil or other citrus essential oils, you will likely love our Organic Bergamot Essential Oil FCF. The aroma has a beautiful complexity that combines citrus, woody and delicately floral notes. Tangerine Essential Oil and Mandarin Essential Oil lovers typically also love Bergamot. Organic Bergamot Essential Oil FCF blends nicely with neroli, cypress, juniper, geranium, rose, ylang ylang and other florals. It is a favorite of perfumers.

Within skin care applications, Organic Bergamot Essential Oil FCF can help to support healthy skin and balance oily complexions. Insects also tend to dislike the aroma of Bergamot Essential Oil.

Our Organic Bergamot Essential Oil FCF has had the bergaptine removed. It is clear in color. The abbreviation FCF stands for furanocoumarin free. Bergaptine is a furanocoumarin that is responsible for causing a phototoxic reaction when applied to skin that is exposed to sunlight. The recommended maximum dermal limit for Bergamot Essential Oil that has not had the furanocoumarins removed is only 0.4% according to Robert Tisserand in Essential Oil Safety Edition 2. Because it has had the phototoxic furanocoumarins removed, our Organic Bergamot Essential Oil FCF can be used at higher percentages in topical applications.
