Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is steam distilled from wild crafted leaves of the Mentha citrata plant.
The fragrance of Bergamot MInt Essential Oil is sweet, herbaceous, and slightly floral. The mint side of this oil is not predominant but, creates a nice, subtle, mint note. Not at all penetrating like the other mints, it is soft, smooth, and, sweet. This is the oil to reach for when you want to add a, soft, mint note but need something more gentle than the other mints. We think of Bergamot Mint whenever we are combining with other citrus oils, because the minty scent will not degrade over time, like the other mints do and it offers a smooth mint scent, tapered by the floral, fruity, notes.
Therapeutic Use: Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is a good choice when you are looking for a calming, relaxing, oil, that isn't real sedative, like the other calming oils. It offers some balancing activity, but leans more towards anti-depressant, and anti-anxiety activity. The anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, activity makes this oil a great choice for your acne, oily skin, product lines, as well, where it will help to improve those conditions without over-drying the skin.
Fragrance Impact: The pleasant, smooth, notes of Bergamot MInt Essential Oil are clean, fresh, and slightly green. A great addition to blends that need a little lift, or top notes. The addition, of a small amount, of Bergamot Mint will give your deeper blends a little lift to make them more pleasant at first impact. If you like Peppermint, Spearmint, and Bergamot, you will, probably, like Bergamot Mint. It is invaluable to your Bath and Body blends, where it combines nicely with Lavender, Sage, Petitgrain, Sandalwood, Neroli, and Chamomile Roman, as well as with all the other citrus oils.
