Bergamot is a deliciously, perfumed fruit approximately the size of an orange. In its essential oil form, it encourages a healthy, clearer complexion, great for oily skin types. And for its uniquely uplifting and calming effects.It has a yellowish color similar to a lemon, used widely as a citrus flavoring agent, especially in gelatins and puddings. Not optimal for juice consumption, it’s nectar is a little less sour than a lemon but more bitter than a grapefruit. It is grown from a small tree that only blossoms during the winter months and originating from the most fragile of the citrus plants, that demand social climate and soil in order to thrive. The Italian culture has used Bergamot for years to dwindle tension and stress and rejuvenate the skin. Where in Greece, the immature fruits are used for sweetmeats, eaten as a treat or with coffee. The round fruit is what gives Earl Grey Tea its fantastically, distinct flavor. It was added to imitate the more upscale varieties of Chinese tea in England since the 1820’s. Historically, it is used to assist with the flow of life-giving energy so the digestive system can work well and properly. Spiritually, Bergamot releases the compulsion to be in exhaustive control of everything around you, so that flowing with life is more apparent.
