Description of Bergamot Oil

Cold-pressed from the nearly ripened peels of the Citrus Bergamia tree's fruits, Bergamot Oil has an incredibly rich, sweet, and fruity odor. Floral and slightly herbaceous, this oil is not considered a "traditional" citrus oil, such as lemon or lime, but is still extensively used throughout the flavor and fragrance industry. In perfumery, bergamot is often used to add sweetness and freshness to citrus fragrances, especially within soaps and other cosmetics. Its flavor is sweet and juicy, but also retains a refreshing citrus note, making it popular among hard candies, pharmaceuticals, and tobacco products.
