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
Due to its high anti-oxidant properties, Bergamot essential oil may help boost collagen levels in the skin and stimulate hair growth. It clears and nourishes your scalp promoting hair growth, and as we all know, a healthy scalp means healthy hair!
Bergamot has antibacterial and antifungal properties, so if acne is one of your skincare concerns, consider incorporating Bergamot into your favourite oil blend. It’s a dry oil, so it absorbs quickly and is non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog your pores and aggravate your dilemma. However, if you use Bergamot in your skincare routine, make sure you only do so in the evening because it can make you more sensitive to sun damage.
Due to its germ-killing properties, Bergamot can also be used to clean the teeth and prevent bacterial build-up there. The oil should also form a coat around the tooth, which prevents the build-up of cavities.
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 passage 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.
Bergamot’s anti-anxiety properties can be highly beneficial when preparing for bedtime. It lowers your blood pressure and helps soothe a busy mind like a calming citrus family member, allowing you to switch from ‘on’ mode to relaxed and happy. That’s in addition to relieving aches, pains, and congestion, which means only one thing “Sweet Dreams”.
Aromatherapy with Bergamot Essential Oil
Bergamot Essential oil is well-known for its calming aromatherapy properties. To use a moisturizer or massage, combine bergamot essential oil with a carrier oil. Two to five drops of Bergamot Essential oil can be added to products like body wash, shampoo, and facial scrubs.
Bergamot Essential oil, for example, can be used to scent homemade candles and air fresheners. You can also dab it in vaporizers to disperse the scent throughout a room or add it to potpourri.
