Bergamot essential oil


(Citrus bergamia)

Bergamot essential oil is used aromatically and topically  while Bergamot Vitality essential oil is a dietary oil and therefore can be ingested.

Like most citrus oils, Bergamot oil is cold pressed from the rind of the fruit. It is unique among citrus oils due to its ability to be both uplifting and calming, making it ideal to diffuse at work or school. A hybrid of a bitter orange and a sweet lemon, the scent of bergamot essential oil is similar to a sweet light orange peel oil with a floral tone and is a common top note in perfumes.

Foot scrub

Sugar Scrub

  • ¼ cup + 2 T V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex
  • 5 drops Bergamot
  • 3 drops Lavender
  • 2 drops Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood
  • 2 drops Wintergreen
  • ¾ cup raw sugar

In a small bowl, mix V-6 oil with essential oils. Add mixture to raw sugar in a larger bowl and combine thoroughly. Store in an airtight jar.

When applying in the bath, you may want to use a pumice stone to speed up the exfoliation process; however, avoid scrubbing your calluses raw or removing them altogether. Remember, they are there to protect your feet. Simply buff them smooth and avoid any cuts or lacerations that could invite infection.
