Description of Bergamot Oil Terpenes
Less sweet and more terpenic than its more refined counterparts, Bergamot Oil Terpenes are floral and fruity, with a slightly herbaceous tinge. While not used as much for flavor purposes, these juicy and somewhat sweet terpenes can add an immediate refreshing burst of citrus to almost any product. Not considered a "traditional" citrus oil, bergamot oil terpenes have a unique floral odor that separates them from other oils such as lemon, orange, and lime.
