Bergamot has a great 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.
With a 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.
Bergamot uses include acne, abscesses, anxiety, boils, cold sores, cystitis, depression, halitosis, itching, loss of appetite, oily skin, psoriasis, and stress.
