How to Use 

For an instant pick-me-up, simply place a drop or two in between your palms, rub it together and cup it over your nose. If you have a vaporizer or humidifier, all you need is a few drops for a long-lasting positive aroma.

We do not use any fillers and use only 100% pure essential oils cold expressed from Bergamot fruit peels.  

For insect bite relief, rub a single drop directly on the sting site. For direct topical use, be sure to see if you are allergic to it by testing with a single drop or two on your skin beforehand.

For a simple deodorizer, add 5-6 drops into a spray bottle with some plain water and give it a quick spritz for a lovely refresher.  

And if you have an upset tummy? Just mix a drop of Bergamot oil into a single teaspoon of any carrier oil of your choice like almond or canola. Massage it lightly onto your tummy area for quick relief.
