Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) Essential Oil is a powerful antispasmodic and can be effective in reducing and eliminating abdominal cramps and spastic coughing. Bergamot is also an effective aid for digestion.

Bergamot has been used to address depression, anxiety, tension, restless leg syndrome, and calming the nervous system. Possessing a bright aroma, Bergamot is a beautiful addition to blends. Bergamot is also fantastic as an ingredient in massage oils as it helps to reduce tension and soothe painfully tight muscles. Bergamot has additional antiviral properties and helps to stimulate the immune system. Try using Bergamot in a diffuser, especially for depression, as it adds a light, uplifting, and lovely aroma to the room.
