Organic Bergamot Mint is a steam distilled essential oil produced in the U.S. from organically cultivated leaves of Mentha citrata, a member of the mint family. With high levels of soothing linalool and linalyl acetate, Bergamot Mint shares many of the same qualities as Lavender Oil yet it is very refreshing with fruity notes of bergamot citrus and mellow mint. An uplifting and restorative oil for aromatherapy applications. Calming anxieties and stress, alleviating nausea and assisting sleep are all benefits associated with this traditional medicinal herb.
Once you have smelled it you will understand why Bergamot mint is also known as Eau de Cologne mint. This beautifully scented oil has great promise in perfumery applications in addition to its therapeutic value. Blends well with Bergamot, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Clementine, Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, Labdanum, Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Orange, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Rosemary, Vetiver and more.
An appealing aroma all on it's own! Diffuse several drops to create a peaceful environment. Dilute into jojoba or sweet almond oil for topical applications. Very fresh and clean, a fantastic scent for soap making or aftershaves. This is a mild variety of mint with low levels of menthol.
