Commonly known as “the oil of self-acceptance”, bergamot essential oil has many emotional benefits. Bergamot supports feelings of confidence as it dissipates low self-esteem and and invokes feelings of self-love.
Bergamot was one of the first oils I purchased from doTERRA and one I continue to use all of the time. I refer to it as the “mascot oil for empaths” as it alleviates anxious feelings and invokes courage to share one’s truest self.
Derived from a citrus fruit, the vibration of bergamot oil is both uplifting and calming, making it an ideal oil to help to release both sad and nervous feelings. It can help to relieve SAD (Seasonal Affected Disorder) as it dissipates dark moods and clarifies the mind.
Bergamot has a clearing effect on stagnant energy, suppressed emotion and limiting beliefs. It supports the flow of energy, revitalizing the body and invoking feelings of optimism and hope.
On a spiritual level, bergamot is aligned with Archangels Gabriel and Michael and pairs well with amethyst.
How to Use Bergamot Essential Oil:
- Inhale from the bottle or diffuse to release anxious feelings, lift a dark mood or soften tension
- Dilute 1-3 drops with fractionated coconut oil and apply over the heart, solar plexus or on the temples to boost confidence
- Diffuse bergamot oil and lavender oil together to help to alleviate feelings of loss or grief
- Transform black tea into Earl Grey by adding one drop of bergamot oil
Cautions: Bergamot is photosensitive. Store in a dark bottle away from sunlight and stay out of the sun for at least 8 – 12 hours after it is applied onto the skin.
