Bergamot is an evergreen tree that grows to a height of about 30 ft. It is native to tropical Asia and is also cultivated in sub-tropical areas such as southern Italy.
If you have ever had a cup of Earl Grey Tea (my son’s favorite) then you know what Bergamot tastes like. It is a citrus tree with fruit that has an aromatic peel.
As an aromatherapy remedy the oil is used to relieve tension, relax muscle spasms and improve digestion.
Do not take bergamot oil internally
