Bergamot Essential Oil

SOiL Bergamot (Citrus Begamia) Essential Oil, R65
Expressed from the peel of the bitter orange tree, Bergamot, which is known for its uplifting action, refreshes and restores. (Bergapten free)
This oil typically has a naturally occurring chemical called bergapten (a furanocoumarin) which is a phototoxic agent that produces abnormally dark pigmentation and reddening of the surrounding skin after exposure to UV rays.
Bergapten has been removed from this Bergamot oil and so is safe to use on the skin.
