Despite the name, Bergamot Mint is not related to the bergamot fruit in any way; rather, it comes from a flowering, perennial herb that is part of the Lamiaceae (mint) family. The two main chemical constituents found in Bergamot Mint oil are linalool and linalyl acetate, which are used in calming and uplifting blends that create a relaxing, soothing, restorative atmosphere.
Bergamot Mint is steam distilled from the leaves of the Mentha Citrata plant and is commonly found in many personal care products. Its natural composition closely resembles that of lavender, and the two oils blend well together.
Essential oils can be applied topically once diluted with a carrier oil. They are widely used in cosmetic goods and handmade crafts.
