Middle/top note with a soft mint, floral and citrus aroma.
Unlike other mints, bergamot mint is very gentle on the skin, and wonderful in blends that instill feelings of peace and calm. Its analgesic effects make it a nice addition to massage blends.
We suggest refrigerating high limonene oils, like bergamot. Skin sensitization possible if using old and/or oxidized oils. Essential Oils are typically used externally through inhalation and topical application while properly diluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified aromatherapy practitioner to address a specific health need, for a specified amount of time. Keep away from children and pets.
