Bergamot Essential Oil Benefits


01 November 2021

Bergamot is a soothing, restorative essential oil, great for relaxing the mind, body and spirit. At Newton Wood we love using Bergamot.  So much so we included it in our brand new range of aromatherapy Bath & Body Oils.

Essential oils bear emotive and powerful fragrances. They can have a stark impact on our mood, health and wellbeing too. We’ve created this blog to help you understand a bit more about why we’ve chosen bergamot as one of our blends for the new bath and body oils.


What is Bergamot?

Described in flavour and fragrance as a cross between orange and lemon and grown in Italy. You may even recognise it from your Earl Grey tea.

Bergamot is known to boost moods and lift spirits.  So if you’re suffering from stress, anxiety, depression or seasonal affective disorder (SAD) this oil is a fantastic natural remedy.

Because it is great for ailments, bergamot has been used throughout history for:

  • Digestion and flatulence
  • Skin conditions including eczema, acne,
  • Cold sores
  • Antiseptic
  • Fever
  • Insomnia
  • Congestion
  • Headaches
  • Muscle aches and pains

And much more…

You’ll notice many of these ailments are also remedied by Epsom salt. And this is why we’re so passionate about adding this fantastic aromatherapy oil to our Epsom salt crystals.


How can I use Bergamot Aromatherapy Oil?

Aromatherapy oils can be used in a number of ways including bath oils, body washes, body creams, candles, room fragrances, cleaning materials and perfumes. Try our Relax Bath & Body Oil, which contains bergamot, and feel the benefits for yourself.


Why should I infuse my Newton Wood Epsom salts with Bergamot?

We love infusing our Newton Wood Epsom salts with Bergamot aromatherapy oil because the oil beautifully complements the healing benefits of the salts.

Our salts can be used as a bath, hand or foot soak or as a body, face and hair scrub or cleanser.  By infusing the salts with Bergamot you’ll notice a wonderful fragrance fills the room and perfumes your skin, which has the added benefit of enhancing your mood and outlook and further improving the quality of your sleep.
