HOW TO USE
To soothe your emotions and balance your mood swings, add about 3-5 drops of Iryasa Bergamot essential oil for every 100ml (3.3 fl.oz) of water in a diffuser.
You may need to increase/decrease the number of drops depending on the size of the room and where your diffuser is kept. For instance, you'd probably need less number of drops for a smaller or less ventilated room. Since the intensity of scents are such a personal preference, we recommend that you start with less and work your way up as needed.
For Topical Application
When diluted with a suitable carrier oil such as Jojoba oil or Sweet Almond Oil, Bergamot oil makes for an excellent massage oil for muscle pain relief or works as a facial oil/serum to clear congested skin.
Use 4 drops in 15ml (0.5 fl.oz) carrier oil (to make ~1% dilution).
All Iryasa Essential Oils are highly concentrated - always dilute with an appropriate carrier oil before topical use

Specific to Bergamot Essential Oil
We always recommend performing a patch test, especially if you are using Bergamot oil for the first time on your skin.
Bergamot oil may cause irritation to sensitive skin if oxidised (exposed to the elements). Therefore, always keep the cap tightly closed.
After topical application of Bergamot oil, avoid immediate exposure to direct sunlight or a sunbed to reduce the chances of phototoxicity.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why does Bergamot oil cause irritation to sensitive skin?
Bergamot oil (Citrus bergamia) contains limonene which when exposed to air, gets oxidised. This oxidised limonene may cause dermal irritation to people with sensitive skin. This is why it is important to store this oil in a dark bottle away from direct sunlight. Always keep the cap tightly closed after using the product.
How is this essential oil extracted? Which solvent is used?
Bergamot essential oil is extracted by cold pressing the rind (peel). There is no solvent used for the extraction process.
What is Bergamot FCF?
Bergamot FCF (Furanocoumarin-free) is also known as “Bergapten-free” Bergamot which is a rectified version of the essential oil that has its phototoxic components removed through further processing. However, the aroma of the FCF version is not as pure & natural compared to the original/whole oil. Our Bergamot Essential Oil (Citrus bergamia) is not FCF which is why we clearly state in our safety information to avoid immediate exposure to direct sunlight upon topical application.
