With its pleasant and uplifting aroma, coupled with its remarkable ability to soothe the emotions, it's not surprising that Bergamot has earned the title "Nature's Prozac" in the aromatherapy world.

Research has verified Bergamot's capacity for restoring emotional balance and, in the process, enhancing the efficacy of treatments for depression and anxiety disorders.

It is soothing and grounding to those who are anxious or overly stimulated, yet uplifting and stabilizing to individuals suffering from depression.

Bergamot is regularly used to generate a fresh, delightfully citrus flavor to food. It is what gives Earl Grey tea its wonderfully distinct bouquet. It produces a marvelous synergy when used sparingly in green tea to create a pleasant anti-inflammatory and detoxifying beverage. This can also be helpful in easing digestive issues such as gastritis, colitis, constipation, ulcers, and esophagitis, as Bergamot is a potent stimulant to the stomach, spleen, and liver.

These benefits are further enhanced by Bergamot's vermicidal and vulnerary actions which assist in eliminating intestinal parasites.

Its antiseptic and diuretic qualities make Bergamot a highly beneficial aid with urinary tract infections and cystitis.

These same qualities make it helpful with many kinds of skin problems - including prematurely aging skin, oily skin and hair, acne, cold sores, skin infections, eczema, psoriasis, itching, and insect bites.

Bergamot can be used as a mouthwash or gargle to ease mouth ulcers and infection (including sore throat), sweeten bad breath, and reduce inflammation.
