Bergamot Essential Oil – One of my favourites!

Recent research has shown that bergamot is beneficial in reducing anxious feelings before a big event (like a job interview, big presentation, meeting with the boss or even surgery). Bergamot acts to balance emotions by working on the hypothalamus resulting in a calm and tonified nervous system. It is wonderful on skin for eczema and has an antimicrobial effect on microorganisms that can cause infection. It may also benefit sun-kissed sun by protecting from DNA damaged caused by UV rays, however, it should not be used without sunscreen before going out into the sun because may increase the sensitivity of skin to the sun.
