Essential Oil Encyclopedia: Bergamot

Bergamot essential oil is derived from the bergamot orange, a fruit endemic to the Calabria region of Italy. You may already be familiar with its citrusy flavor–it is most notably used in Earl Grey tea! However, this isn’t the only place that bergamot can be found. In fact, bergamot is probably already a part of your everyday life. It is a common ingredient in perfumes, food and drink, and even medicinal products.
