Bergamot FCF is safer to use on the skin and wonderful used in massage as the FCF Bergamot is free of Bergapten.
ROOM FRAGRANCE: Use a few drops in a room diffuser, or on some tissue placed on a hot water radiator. Ideal to lift mild depression, for unwinding after a traumatic day at work, or simply as a very pleasant air refresher.
BATHS: Add 6-8 drops to the water, as a mental stimulant or relaxant (depending on the emotional state). It may be found helpful if used as a douche in the bath to relieve the itching caused by thrush, cystitis or haemorrhoids.
MASSAGE: A few drops in the massage oil for: emotional instability; anxiety; loss of appetite; oily skin; acne, or just for its wonderful fragrance. Bergamot mixes extremely well with many other oils such as Lavender, Neroli, Ho leaf and Mandarin.
OTHER USES: Bergamot essential oil will partly dissolve in alcohol such as gin or vodka. This blend can then be used as an application on irritating skin conditions such as chicken pox, measles and shingles. Use 10 drops of F.C.F. oil to a 5 ml. spoon of alcohol and dab it onto the spots, if the alcohol causes too much stinging on children, dab on some distilled witch hazel a minute or two after applying the alcohol/oil mix.
Bergamot blends well with other Citrus oils; Basil; Roman Chamomile; Clary; Cypress; Geranium; Ho leaf; Jasmin; Lavender; Juniper; Sweet Marjoram; Neroli; Pines; Rosemary and Ylang.
The F.C.F. grade Bergamot oil is safe; these initials mean that the natural photosensitizing agents have been reduced to safe levels.
Interesting Note: Citrus trees can intercross naturally, or this is done by man. Commercial growers of citrus trees frequently graft stocks. Due to this, establishing the precise botanical variety is an inexact science and it makes an exact botanical name for the essential oils yielded meaningless.
Caution: Keep all essential oils out of reach of children, and away from the eyes
This is my new favorite scent! It smells great on its own, but also blends well with orange, patchouli, and the manuka scents.
So, I decided to finally place my order. Are the bottles frilly and fancy? No! Do they use pretty flowers to advertise? No! Is the oil inside these bottles of Bergamot pure HEAVEN??? YES!!! Wow!! Pure, warm, perfect!! I was literally floored! Thinking it could possibly be a “one hit wonder”, I proceeded to the next bottle. And the next! These oils are AMAZING!! The price, quality and consistency of these oils are what it’s all about!! I wish I’d tried you sooner! I’m about to do a MAJOR clean up so I can order every oil I love!!! On to the next review!!!
The bottle didn’t contain a plastic piece to allow the oil to come out in drops. This would be useful. The oil itself if great!
Excellent oil! Perfect aroma.
Love this oil, great for muscle pain!
Beautiful, calming, uplifting..It is a wonderful oil
I really LOVE the smell of this Bergamot FCF even I literally just realized now that it's originally from China!! Lol
