Bergamot is derived from cold-pressing the rind of the fragrant bergamot fruit, which looks like a combination of an orange and a lime. Fun fact: that spicy, citrusy aroma you love in Earl grey tea? That’s Bergamot.

As the finest scent in the citrus family, Bergamot is found in about half of women’s perfumes and a third of men’s colognes. It’s a great multi-use essential oil for the home as well—we love it because it’s fresh and comforting.
