What is Bergamot Oil (Bergamot essential oil)?

Bergamot is a citrus fruit whose rind is used to extract a powerful essential oil. The scientific name of bergamot is Citrus aurantium var. or Citrus bergamia. It is a tropical plant widely spread in Thailand. Its powerful aroma makes it a popular component in many perfumes. It is derived from cold press of its dried skin. One of the most common applications that you may not be aware of is its use in black tea preparation, famous as Earl Gray.

Health Benefits of Bergamot Essential Oil

Improves Blood Circulation

Some of main components of Bergamot oil, like alpha-pinene and limonene, are antidepressant and stimulating in nature. By improving blood circulation, it creates a feeling of freshness, joy, and energy for those who suffer of sadness and depression. They also stimulate hormonal secretions, thus it helps to maintain a proper metabolic rate. This stimulating effect also increases the secretion of digestive juices, bile, and insulin, resulting in an aid in digestion, proper absorption of nutrients. Bergamot oil also enhances the assimilation and decomposition of sugar, resulting in a lower level of blood sugar.

Prevents Infections

Certain components of the essential Bergamot oil are antibiotic and disinfectant in nature. They inhibit the growth of germs, viruses and fungi. They also effectively prohibit infections. If regularly used with bathing water or in soaps (it is already used extensively in skin care soaps), the skin and hair remain protected from infections and become shiny. Essential Bergamot oil also cures infections in the colon, intestines, urinary tract, and kidneys.

Reduces Pain

Bergamot essential oil reduces the feeling of pain in the body. It stimulates the secretion of hormones which lower the sensitivity of nerves to pain. Therefore, it is very helpful in case of headaches, sprains, muscle aches or any other symptoms/ailments which require a heavy dosage of analgesic pills, avoiding their heavy side effects.

Relaxant & Sedative

The flavonoids which are part of Bergamot oil are very good relaxants. They soothe the nerves and reduce nervous tension, anxiety, and stress, all of which can help cure ailments associated with stress such as high blood pressure, insomnia, and depression. Flavonoids in Bergamot oil can also stimulate the activity of dopamine and serotonin, which induce feelings of relaxation and sedation.

Aids in Digestion

Bergamot essential oil activates and increases secretions of digestive acids, enzymes, and bile, hence facilitating digestion. This powerful Essential oil also synchronizes and regulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines, quickening the digestive process and reducing strain to the intestinal tract. This way, it reduces constipation, makes bowel movements regular, and prevents gastrointestinal complications like colorectal cancer.

Skin Care

The cicatrizant property of Bergamot oil is the reason of its extensive use in cosmetics and skin care manufacturing, e.g. in beauty soaps, creams, or lotions. Bergamot oil helps eliminate trace of scars and other marks on the skin. It also makes the distribution of pigments and melanin uniform, resulting in the fading away of marks. This essential oil is commonly used to eliminate the unsightly effects of acne, which can leave noticeable scars on the affected areas for many years.

Eliminates Bad Odor

Bergamot essential oil is an excellent deodorant. The disinfectant properties of bergamot oil inhibit the growth of germs causing body-odor; its refreshing aroma completes the job. This makes it an effective and attractive delivery system as a deodorant. Citrus smells are very powerful and can overcome or eliminate many other odors. For this reason Bergamot oil is also used in room fresheners and sprays.

Reduces Fever

Bergamot essential oil is a good febrifuge for many reasons. First, as an antibiotic, it fights infections that arise from viruses, bacteria, and protozoa that cause fever, including influenza (virus), malaria (protozoa), and typhoid (typhus bacteria). Then, stimulates the metabolic system and gland secretions, providing a feeling of warmth and resulting in additional secretion (perspiration or sweat) from the eccrine glands and sebaceous glands, thus reducing body temperature. This can also reduce the toxicity of the body through perspiration, and clean out the glands and pores of any foreign toxins.

Kills Germs

Bergamot oil kills intestinal worms, and it is a subtle and fragrant choice for children who have contracted. It can also be applied to unhealthy, infected teeth or used as a mouth-wash to kill oral germs and protect teeth from the development of cavities.

Relieves Spasms

Essential oil from Bergamot relaxes nerves and muscles, thereby giving quick relief from cramps, convulsions, and painful muscle contractions. This can also be important for people with chronic coughing, respiratory conditions or asthma, which is similar to a spasmodic reaction.

Speeds-up Healing

The same disinfectant and antibiotic properties of Bergamot oil make it a good antiseptic agent too. It not only promotes fast healing of wounds, cracks in the skin and heels, ulcers, eczema, and itching but also protects wounds from becoming septic and developing deadly tetanus.

Other Benefits

Bergamot oil is a tonic, which means that it enhance the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, excretory, and nervous system, as well as skin and muscles. It is also anti-congestive and is used in vaporizers to relieve congestion and respiratory problems that usually arise during coughs and colds. It is an effective expectorant to loosen up phlegm and mucus in the respiratory tracts and helps the body to eliminate it through natural avenues like sneezing and coughing.
