I love Bergamot Essential Oil when I need internal encouragement and regularly add it to diffuser blends for those who are viewing the world through the dark glasses of low self-esteem.  It helps balance spirits and encourages a more realistic view. When stress, tension and anxiety have fatigued me, this is my “go to” oil.  Earl Grey tea is flavored with bergamot — as long as you’re not purchasing an adulterated blend of the tea (we highly encourage you to look the tea up if you don’t already know about it).

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible.  In this instance, it’s 0.4%.  Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

Bergamot Essential Oil Safety Info

According to Tisserand and Young, this Bergamot Essential Oil carries a moderate risk of phototoxicity.  Avoid UV rays  on application site for 12 hours after topical application if used at dilutions above the maximum dermal use.  [We (DeRu Extracts Staff) suggest that topical application be made in places that will always be covered with clothing.]  Never use old or oxidized oils.  To slow oxidation, storing it in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator is recommended. Adding an antioxidant oil to topical use products containing it is recommended. Maximum dermal use dilution should be 0.4% to avoid phototoxicity. Bergamot Essential Oil should also follow the normal safety precautions listed below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Bergamot essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
