Seed Body Care introduces Bergamot essential oil to our Beneficial Blends and Custom Blends lineup!
Warm and spicy meets a gorgeous floral citrus -- that's Bergamot essential oil in a nutshell. Our latest essential oil addition, 100% pure bergamot essential oil (Citrus Bergamia), is distilled from its peel, rather than the seed. Why does this matter? Bergamot from the seed is much more likely to be linked to photosensitivity issues. You get all of the amazing benefits from the peel, but without the same concerns. Let's look at the many benefits of this oil.
Fun fact: Are you a tea drinker? If so, you will be familiar with the aroma of Bergamot, even if it's an oil you don't think you've tried before. Earl Grey tea has Bergamot oil in it -- that is why you likely recognize the aroma.

- Dr. Marlynn Wei, a Harvard-trained Psychiatrist and Certified Yoga Teacher contributed an article to the Huff Post about the benefits of aromatherapy and essential oils for a good night’s sleep. She mentions in the article that certain oils such as Bergamot have been shown in studies to have an impact biochemically that is similar to anti-anxiety medication.
