The valuable properties of bergamot have been known for centuries. Even before the production of essential oil began, the antiseptic characteristics of this plant were discovered. At a time when antibiotics were not available, soothing and healing balms were prepared from bergamot.
Modern research confirms that bergamot essential oil is effectively used in the treatment of dermatological diseases and to reduce inflammation caused by insect bites.
The effectiveness of bergamot oil is especially pronounced due to its complex use in the treatment of diseases of the genitourinary system. The timely use of bergamot oil in baths or washing solutions can prevent the spread of infection at the first sign of the disease.
Also, bergamot comes to the rescue during periods of reduced sunlight, when serotonin production decreases sharply. Bergamot tea, aromatic baths, or simple inhalation can bring about a sense of harmony and restore psychological balance.
The volatile substances of bergamot essential oil stimulate the mucous membrane of the nasal passages, transmitting a direct signal to the hypothalamus, which regulates the body’s psychoendocrine activity.
