Often, the fragrance industry uses bergamot to harmonize scents in perfumes. If you are looking for ideas on bergamot oil blends, you may consider mixing bergamot oil with black pepper, frankincense, geranium, orange, ylang-ylang and patchouli.



Due to its main therapeutic constituents, bergamot essential oil is good for treating several conditions:

  • Helps release emotional distress
  • Support for coping with depression and mood swings
  • Soothes skin inflammation
  • Relieves joint and muscle tension
  • Supports immunity


Bergamot is a cross-breed between the orange and lemon citrus trees. The inedible hybrid fruit is native to countries in Southeast Asia, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. Bergamot essential oil is obtained through cold-pressing and distillation of the evergreen citrus tree peels.

There are two main narratives around the origin and the name of the bergamot. The first one claims that Citrus bergamia is named after the Italian city of Bergamo. In fact, the Calabria region in Italy is said to provide more than 90% of the world supply today. According to other sources, Bergamot gets its name from the Turkish words “beg-armudi, " meaning “The Prince’s Pear”.

In old times, bergamot was used as a flavoring in the tea industry and as a harmonizing scent in the fragrance industry. It was exclusively reserved for the rich and royal families.



Bergamot essential oil is both uplifting and soothing. Aromatherapists use it to cope with nervousness, sad feelings and grief. On a physical level, the benefits of the bergamot essential oil include purifying and calming the skin, including healing scars. Additionally, bergamot oil is good for fighting bacteria, alleviating headaches and muscle tension, as well as stimulating digestive juices.



Due to its active constituents, bergamot essential oil exhibits analgesic, antibacterial and sedative effects on our body and mind. It is used to treat conditions such as acne, anxiety, cystitis, depression, eczema, halitosis, infections, rashes, oily skin, pain, psoriasis and respiratory ailments.

A 2011 study suggested that applying a blend of lavender and bergamot oils helped manage depression or anxiety. Compared with the placebo group, the bergamot essential oil blend caused a significant decrease in pulse rate and blood pressure. Another clinical research suggests that bergamot oil can cope with chronic pain in the body.



Helps release emotional distress

Relieve chronic stress and anxiety by using bergamot oil in a diffuser. You can use it solo or blend it with lavender. Furthermore, for a quick effect, you can apply bergamot oil topically to ease stress by rubbing 1 to 2 drops directly onto your temples and wrists.

Copes with depression and mood swings

Bergamot oil can help you manage depressive episodes, as it uplifts your nervous system. Like most citrus essential oils, it energizes the mind and it is a great choice in case you suffer from mental fatigue. The bergamot essential oil creates feelings of joy, while it reduces cortisol levels in the body.

Soothes skin inflammation

Bergamot essential oil when blended with other essential oils such as lavender or chamomile may calm irritated skin and reduce the appearance of redness. Thanks to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities, Bergamot oil is good for coping with skin problems such as eczema, some types of dermatitis, or psoriasis.

Relieves joint and muscle tension

As bergamot essential oil (Citrus bergamia) is rich in linalool, this makes bergamot oil a great way to relieve symptoms such as sprains and muscle and joint aches. Researchers have shown that linalool has a positive effect on neurological and inflammatory pain. So, next time you feel tension and stiffness in your muscles or joints, consider rubbing five drops of bergamot oil blended with one spoon of carrier oil, for example - almond or hemp oil.

Supports immunity

Bergamot oil exhibits antibacterial properties. Some clinical trials suggest that bergamot essential oil can neutralize some bacteria strains and fungi, such as Listeria monocytogenes and Candida species. To prevent harmful bacterial illness, diffuse bergamot essential oil or add a few drops to a warm-water bath. It is a much better, natural alternative to conventional antibiotics to which our bodies are becoming resistant.



  • Use in the bath for aromatherapy benefits
  • Diffuse for the emotional and mental benefits
  • Massage, well diluted, for physical ailments



You should avoid exposure to direct sunlight for up to 12 hours after the topical application of bergamot oil. Also, bergamot essential oil could mess up your blood sugar levels if you have diabetes and take medications.

Bergamot essence for hair growth

Although it is mostly used for relaxation and pain management, bergamot oil can also be applied to the scalp to stimulate blood flow and microcirculation and to clean the skin from bacteria that may be causing dandruff or itching. The stimulating and antibacterial properties of bergamot oil make it a good choice if you want to revive and nourish your hair. Here are a couple of easy recipes to try at home:

  • 5 drops of bergamot essential oil
  • 5 drops of mint essential oil
  • 5 drops of clary sage essential oil
  • 50 ml of almond oil (or another carrier oil of choice)

Apply and massage your scalp well. Leave the mixture for at least 20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.

If you suffer from hair loss or your hair is very thin and prone to breakage, try this:

  • 5 drops of bergamot essential oil
  • 8 drops of rosemary essential oil
  • 100 ml of sweet almond oil (as a base to dilute the essential oils)

Apply and massage your scalp well. Leave the mixture for 1 hour and then rinse thoroughly.


Bergamot oil for skin

Bergamot oil can help you cope with oily skin and has a lightening effect on the skin. If you want to use it to reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation, keep in mind that you should avoid the sun for at least 12 hours after applying bergamot oil to the skin. Generally, it is recommended to use skin-lightening cosmetics during fall and winter, when the UV index is much lower. 

Try this home-made facial scrub:

  • 50 ml of sweet almond oil
  • 3 spoons sugar
  • 10 drops of bergamot essential oil

Mix bergamot essential oil and carrier oil and then add the sugar. Stir well and store in a jar. Wash your face with the mixture twice a week.
