Description

Bergamot essential oil is cold-pressed from the rind of the nearly ripe fruit of the Bergamot tree, also known as Citrus Bergamia. The Bergamot orange tree is small in stature and is the result of cross-breeding between lemon and orange trees, thus explaining why the fruit is yellow in color and shaped like a pear. The Bergamot tree can be traced back to Southeast Asia, however, it was more widely cultivated in the coastal regions of Southern Italy.
