Do you use Essential Oils? How do you use them? I have always wanted to learn all about Essential Oils! For this review I received one bottle of Bergamot Oil, First Response and Pep Talk Essential Solutions Mist. Oh, both the First Response and Pep Talk Essential Solutions Mist smell awesome! They are great for cleansing and purifying the air around you! The Bergamot Oil smells awesome as well, it's great as a room spray too, which is diluted with water and you can add other essential oils with it. You can even make an Oily Skin Facial Mask, which I can't wait to try! I love all of these awesome essential oils and I plan on making them a part of my life. I highly recommend the essential oils from Aura Cacia!
About Bergamot Essential OilBergamot oil is cold-pressed from the peel of the nearly ripe fruit. The aroma of bergamot oil is fresh, lively, fruity and sweet. It is an excellent deodorizer. It contains a constituent called bergaptene that increases the skin's sensitivity to sunlight. Bergamot BF means "bergaptene free." Most of the sensitizing bergaptene constituent has been distilled out of this product but traces may still remain. Common sense dictates that one avoid using bergamot and bergamot BF on the skin when there is a possibility of exposure to sunlight. Aromatherapy benefits: uplifting, inspiring, confidence-building.
Bergamot has a rich, sweet-fruity, citrus top note. The middle note is more oily herbaceous, floral-citrus and sweet. Dry out is lightly sweet-balsamic, clary-sage like, tea like.
- Diffusing bergamot at home can keep tempers and frustrations at bay, creating peace and harmony.
