Bergamot’s spicy-sweet citrus personality is pure joy. Calming and uplifting, diffuse this essential oil to support relaxation, ease tension and freshen air. Add a few drops to your cleaning products for a great smelling boost, or sprinkle into smelly shoes and sports equipment. As the oil is somewhat photosensitive, do not apply to the skin before direct sun exposure and always dilute at .5% (4 drops per ounce of carrier) or less.
