Description and Uses: Bergamot oil is familiar to many as the flavoring in Earl Grey Tea. It is a popular ingredient in many fragrances, cosmetics and perfumes, and is most well known as the classic ingredient of eau-de-cologne. This light, fresh citrus oil is both uplifting and grounding.
According to Gabriel Mojay ("Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit"), Bergamot oil has the ability to help disperse stagnant Qi-energy, helping us to move forward with a lighter spirit and a more optimistic and energetic approach to life.
Try this recipe for an Uplifting Blend:

2 Drops Bergamot Essential Oil
Blend the essential oils with 6 teaspoons of massage base or any carrier oil you have on hand. Lovely for a gentle massage, a bath, or to use as an uplifting fragrance.
Cautions: Bergamot essential oil can increase the susceptibility of the skin to burning if applied before going out into the sunlight. This Bergamot is Bergapten-free which reduces the susceptibility to photosensitizing and so is safer to use in massage oils and lotions.
