7 Ways to Use Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot essential oil has a vast array of different uses. From aiding in digestion, to stress relief, this oil extracted from the fruit of the dwarf Seville orange tree is one that has a place in any essential oil collection.

Using Bergamot Essential Oil for Inner Wellness

Bergamot essential oil provides many inner wellness benefits. Ways to use bergamot essential oil to feel better mentally include:

  1. Mood Lifter

    Bergamot essential oil is an essential mood lifter. Depression and its many varying symptoms can be debilitating to sufferers, and bergamot essential oil can help to improve depression symptoms alone or in conjunction with antidepressant medication. To use bergamot as a mood lifter, simply place a few drops into nebulizing essential oil diffuser and allow the scent of the oil to fill the air. In aromatherapy, bergamot has been shown to induce feelings of happiness, refreshment, and joy.
  1. Stimulates Hormone Production

    Hormones control so many of the processes of our body, and when hormones are out of whack, our bodies take notice. Bergamot essential oil in aromatherapy can help to stimulate hormone production, and these range from the hormones that control mood to those that trigger our metabolism.
  1. Stress Relief

    Stress and its effects can really sneak up on us. When exposed to prolonged periods of stress, our bodies will begin to feel the toll and manifest symptoms like digestive upset, headaches, or even panic attacks. Being a hormone stimulant, bergamot essential oil can stimulate the production of stress relief hormones like serotonin and dopamine, helping you to take control of your stress in order to relax. If you’ve had a particularly stressful day, a few drops of bergamot oil in your nebulizing diffuser can work wonders in decimating your stress levels.
7 Ways to Use Bergamot Essential Oil
  1. Aids in Fighting Infection

    Bergamot inhibits fungal growth, takes care of germs, and does a number on viruses. For this reason, it’s a great oil to use in body washes and hair care, and it’s useful to diffuse in a nebulizer to cleanse and purify the air in your home.
  1. Deodorant

    If you create your own deodorant at home, bergamot essential oil is a perfect ingredient. Not only does it have a pleasant and refreshing aroma, but it can prevent the growth of the germs responsible for creating odor in the first place. Bergamot blends well with many other scents. To make a simple fragrant deodorant try blending it with lemon and sandalwood for a combination that smells great and is very effective.
  1. Reduces Scarring

    If you have scars you’re self-conscious of, bergamot can be a tough weapon against them. With its antifungal and antibacterial properties, it also makes a great weapon against acne, as it cleanses the skin while simultaneously taking care of the scarring and marks that acne leaves behind. Bergamot isn’t only for clearing acne scars, the ability to even out melanin in the skin allows bergamot to work on any scar on the body.
  1. Congestion Relief

    Bergamot essential oil can also be your best friend when you find yourself down and out with a cold or allergies. Congestion can really effect how you feel throughout your whole body, and an over the counter decongestant alone may not be enough. Add some bergamot to a nebulizing diffuser and release the pure essential oil into the air. When you breathe it in it will help to break up mucus and phlegm caught in the chest and sinus, loosening it and making it easier to express from the body. With the sweet fresh scent of bergamot oil, it can also help you to get a little energy back when you’re laid up with a cold bug.
