What is Bergamot Mint?
Bergamot mint, despite its name, is in no way related to the bergamot fruit; rather, it comes from a flowering, perennial herb that is part of the Lamiaceae (mint) family. The essential oil, commonly found in many personal care products, is steam distilled from the leaves and stems of the Mentha citrata plant.
How to use bergamot mint
Fresh, gently minty, and slightly citrusy, Bergamot Mint essential oil can be used aromatically and topically. Bergamot Mint is perfect for diffusing after a hard day or at bedtime. It can also be a wonderfully soothing addition to a comforting massage or warm bath.
The calming, inspiring aroma of Bergamot Mint is also effective in purifying the air of musty or unpleasant odors. Diffuse it or add a few drops to a small spray bottle with water to make a refreshing, clean-smelling room spray.
Another simple and easy way to use Bergamot Mint is to use it with the unscented doTERRA Spa Lotion. Just put a drop or two of Bergamot Mint in your palm, add a little lotion, and lather up. This can be especially useful for a comforting aroma at bedtime. Bergamot Mint is relatively gentle on the skin and is ideal for topical blends.
