Benefits of Bergamot Essential Oil

Fight infection

Bergamot Oil

Bergamot Essential Oil has antibacterial qualities due to specific antiseptic components. Microbes such as bacteria, fungus, and viruses are inhibited by it. As a result, it’s beneficial in avoiding skin and scalp infections. It treats dandruff, eczema, rashes, itchy skin, and minor cuts and wounds. It helps to keep the colon, intestines, urinary tract, and kidneys free of infection.

Alleviate pain

joint pain

Bergamot Oil’s analgesic properties are primarily due to its ability to promote secretions that diminish nerve sensitivity. This relieves pain, stress, and anxiety in the affected area. Bergamot Oil can be used topically to relieve pain from many perspectives, including severe headaches, chronic arthritis, muscle discomfort, and joint pain.

Relieve Anxiety

Relieve Anxiety

Bergamot Essential Oil contains flavonoids that help relieve stress and anxiety by stimulating the secretion of serotonin and dopamine. It promotes blood circulation and has a mild soothing effect that relaxes both the body and the mind.

Aid digestion

Aid digestion

Bergamot Essential oil promotes digestion by stimulating the secretion of digestive enzymes, like bile, that aids digestion, and nutrient absorption. It also aids in the speeding up of your metabolism. The digestive tract vermiculation is expedited, and the rate of food passage in the gut is boosted. As a result, colon cancer is effectively prevented by lowering the time food remains in the colon.

Lower blood pressure

Lower blood pressure

Bergamot Essential Oil encapsulates the breakdown of sugar and can reduce blood pressure due to its capacity to aid the digestive process and encourage increased absorption of nutrients.

Relaxant

Bergamot Essential Oil is very effective at both lifting person’s mood and calming one’s nerves. It is also known to stimulate certain hormones in the body, such as dopamine and serotonin, culminating in an instinctual state of relaxation.

Promotes Healthy Hair

Promotes Healthy Hair

Bergamot essential oil may help strengthen collagen levels in the skin and stimulate hair growth due to its high antioxidant capabilities. It cleanses and nourishes your scalp, encouraging hair growth, as we all know that a healthy scalp implies good hair!

Skin Care

Bergamot contains antibacterial and antifungal properties, so if acne is a concern for you, try incorporating it into your favorite oil blend. It’s a dry oil that absorbs rapidly and is non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog your pores or cause your issue worse. If you use Bergamot in your skincare routine, use it exclusively in the evenings because it can make you more sensitive to sun damage.

Oral Health

Oral Health

Bergamot essential oil can also be used to clean teeth and prevent bacterial build-up due to its germ-killing properties. The oil must develop a protective coating around the tooth, preventing cavities from occurring.

Asthma Prevention

Asthma Prevention

Bergamot is also an excellent substance for treating asthma in the body. Because asthma attacks occur when the bronchial passage constricts, Bergamot works by relaxing the muscles in the path and allowing it to open up slightly more. 

To help your bronchial passages open more fully, mix a drop of bergamot oil with a teaspoon of carrier oil in your hand. Mix thoroughly and apply to your throat. 

Sleep Aid

Sleep Aid

The anti-anxiety effects of Bergamot can be beneficial when trying to sleep. Like a calming citrus family member, it lowers blood pressure and helps soothe a busy mind, letting you go from ‘on’ mode to relaxed and joyful. That’s on top of easing asches, pains, and congestion, which only means one thing: “Sweet Dreams.”

Regulates mood

Bergamot oil has been proven to stimulate the release of dopamine and serotonin in the brain, which are essential hormones that regulate mood.

Inhaling bergamot oil allows neurons (such as serotonin and dopamine) to be released in the brain, which helps regulate emotions.

Bergamot Essential Oil for Aromatherapy

The relaxing aromatherapy properties of Bergamot essential oil are well-known. Combine bergamot essential oil and carrier oil to make a moisturizer or massage oil. Body washes, shampoos, and face scrubs can benefit from two to five drops of Bergamot Essential oil.

Essential oils like Bergamot can be used to scent homemade candles and air fresheners, for example. You may also use it in vaporizers or add it to potpourri to diffuse the aroma around an area.
