What is Bergamot?

Bergamot is a plant native to the southern part of Italy that produces a citrus type fruit. It is not the same as the Wild Bergamot which is in the mint family. The name Bergamot comes from the Italian city of Bergamo.

Bergamot is more sour than an orange but less than a grapefruit. It’s a hybrid type fruit between a sour orange and a lemon. Greenish yellow in color

Common products that contain Bergamot

  • Earl Grey Tea
  • Armani (have been known to use in some of their fragrances)
  • Coco Chanel (have been known to use in some of their fragrances)
  • Christian Dior (have been known to use in some of their fragrances)
  • Victoria’s Secret (have been known to use in some of their fragrances)

Bergamot Essential Oil can cause sun sensitivity like other citrus type oils

Please use with caution as this can cause ill reactions that can burn and irritate your skin

If you already have sun sensitivity or take certain medications that can also cause sun sensitivity Bergamot Essential Oil can enhance the sensitivity.

I actually suffer from PMLE, Polymorphic Light Eruption, a rash commonly found in people with Lupus. It is a rash caused by sun exposure. So I make sure when I use bergamot oil that I use it at night-time only and make sure to take a shower before going out in the sun the following day.
