Skin care herbal folk tradition on Bergamot Oil:
In skin care, Bergamot is wonderful for many skin problems, including eczema. Pleasantly scented makes for a wonderful natural deodorant killing odor causing bacteria. The aroma of Bergamot is second only to Lavender in helping the brain to relax when sniffed- thus being a very calming scent.
In skin care Bergamot is used for:
- Cold sores
- Insect bites
- Oily complexion
- Varicose veins
Precautions: If you use Bergamot as a skin treatment or in massage oil, stay out of the sun since Bergamot is considered a photosensitive oil. In other words- it can increase the chance of tan or sunburn.
