Bergamot is one my must have Essential oils. I know I say this a lot but they have so many useful essential oils that I can't help myself!! Bergamot health benefits can be attributed to its properties as a deodorant, vulnerary, vermifuge, antibiotic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, and a sedative. It also acts as an analgesic, antidepressant, disinfectant, febrifuge, cicatrizant, and a digestive substance.
I use it for stress/anxiety. I do a roller mix of Lavender, Bergamot, and my favorite carrier oil and keep it on my desk. I can feel the calming effects almost instantly. This roller is good for reducing my heart rate, blood pressure, and anxiety within minutes. Obviously it does not take the place of any of my meds but it helps me keep these things under control even more.
Not only does it help tremendously but it smells great too. With a slight citrus scent. It's not an overwhelming smell which is always a plus for me. I hate something that smells too strong!
Now -- I am not a doctor so this is just an observation/opinion of mine. Also remember essential oils do work differently for everyone
