I have been drawn to begamont essential oil for the last couple of months. I had bought it to make up a diffuser blend, and loved it as part of that, but hadn’t really researched what it’s uses were. Then I took part in a conference call earlier this month and they were talking about how we are often drawn to the oils that we need. Well I have definitely been drawn to bergamont and now I was curious why. I mean I knew I loved bergamont before I ever started with essential oils because earl grey tea has it and it’s one of my favourite teas. But that didn’t explain why I was so drawn to bergamont EO now.
The young living website lists begamont’s uses below:
Bergamot Essential Oil
Bergamot has a light, sweet citrusy scent. Uplifting and relaxing, it is good for building confidence and enhancing your mood. It has a long history of use for oily skin.
In Aromatherapy can be used topically:
- to help reduce the symptoms of acne or boils.
- to relieve minor skin irritation, cuts, bruises & burns.
- to experience relief from eczema and dermatitis.
- to help relieve headache.
- or inhaled when experiencing digestive discomfort can act as a carminative and antispasmodic.
- or inhaled to reduce the symptoms of cold & cough.
Well after reading this I’m pretty sure I have been so drawn to it because I needed help staying calm, and perhaps I subconsciously knew I needed the extra confidence boost to start a blog. I can’t say what the reason was for sure, but I know I was definitely self conscious about starting a blog, and felt a bit like puking after I hit publish on my first post. I’m feeling a bit better about it all now, don’t get me wrong, it’s still way out of my comfort zone, but I’m starting to feel a bit better about it all. So maybe I have bergamont to thank for the boost in confidence to actually do it. Or maybe some higher power was looking down on me and gave me a shove. Regardless I still love bergamont and I’m very happy that I took the leap out of my comfort zone and started this blog. Because although it scares me, it is also becoming something that I really enjoy.
The diffuser blend I mentioned in the beginning is also great as a rollerball blend that you can wear. I mixed it as I would for my diffuser but topped with a carrier oil in a 10ml rollerball.
I found the recipe on pinterest. It’s 3 drops Clary sage, 2 drops bergamont and 1 drop lavender. I think it smells amazing.
