Bergamot Essential Oil BF/FCF FREE
Adam Michael has this to say “The bergamot tree (Citrus bergamia) takes its name from the small town of Bergamo in Northern Italy. The fruit (like a miniature orange), has been used for hundreds of years in Italian folk medicine, but not in that of other countries, as the tree was almost unknown outside Italy, and the fruit was not exported until relatively recent times.
The fragrance is equally acceptable to men and women, and it blends with almost any flower oil, giving it considerable versatility. Lavender/bergamot, geranium/ bergamot or all three of these oils together, are among some of the most pleasing combinations. It is particularly valuable for adding a sharper note to some of those oils which may be deemed over sweet.”
Mark Evans has this to say “At last, an outstanding FCF bergamot! Of course it’s always a good idea to use furocoumarin free bergamot oils in products that are going to be applied to skin because of the photosensitising problem. However, there’s the concern that the process that removes the phototoxic ingredients has too much of an effect on the smell and performance of the oil. Worry no more. I’ve smelled many different bergamot oils in my time and this is probably the best of the lot and the fact that it is completely safe to use is an added bonus! A powerfully fresh, juicy and zingy paradise of orange, mandarin and lime peels so useful in the top note of pretty much any and every fragrance composition you can care to think of. Feel free to dose this oil as high as you like as there is no problem with bitterness or astringency.”
