Product Abstract: The Bergamot tree can grow up to four meters high, with star-shaped flowers, and smooth leaves, bearing citrus fruit resembling a cross between an orange and a grapefruit, but in a pear shape. The fruit ripens from green to yellow. The name Bergamot is derived from the city Bergamo in Lombardy where the oil was first sold.

Rating: I had been a long time without bergamot, missing it terribly. I am 100% in love with this bergamot. I am very ill and must take quite a few prescriptions, My body and head (pain) and the ups and downs, ins and outs of anxiety and depression and my migraines are all extremely happy to have it back in my life. Also, the quality and pricing made the empty bottle run away in shame.
Thank you, Kimmy!

Rating: This is my absolute favorite EO and I have been able to find this quality anywhere else. It's citrus with some floral and spice.
By:Cheryl, Charlotte, North Carolina Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Nov-2005
Rating: Wonderful bergamot! Clean, fresh, green with a hint of citrus. Great alone or blended.

Rating: This is an exquisite bergamot! I previously purchased bergamot EO from another supplier. I loved it, but NDA's is far superior, with a wonderful complexity the (somewhat cheaper) bergamot from the other supplier lacked.
Rating: I bought the 3.3 oz without smelling it first and I am very pleased! I had a very expensive Bergamot from another seller that I loved, but I wanted to give ND a try. Wonderful! I have no reason to purchase from anywhere else now. Lovely oil!
By:Ginger, Puyallup, Washington Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Feb-2014
Rating: Beautiful bergamot! A lot of depth. Blends very well.
In my opinion, N.D. has some of the best citrus based scents I have found.
Sicilian Lemon, being my favorite
By:Harry, Oreland, Pennsylvania Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Sep-2012
Rating: This is a nice scent, not at all overwhelming. It's not overly sweet and there's just enough of a masculine note to make it a good unisex scent. It didn't accelerate in my CP soap; so far I haven't used it in an uncolored soap so I don't know if it discolors.
Rating: I love this oil. about a year ago I had surgery on my nose so that I could breath (it had been broken) well there was a spot on my nose that would not heal. about a week ago I started putting bergamot oil on it, it is completely healed and my skin look wonderful.
Rating: I love the smell of Bergamot, it has a spicy citrus scent and is even more wonderful when blended with ginger or clary sage.
By:Lisa, Pellston, Michigan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-May-2008
Rating: I like how well this blends with other oils. I used it with Lavender and Chamomile to help my son who couldn't sleep and was a little down. I tried the blend myself too as I have sleeping issues. Slept like a log. Which is unusual for me. Loved how well ND packages and your quality and price are great. Thanks ND!

Rating: Love this oil. I have used a few drops in my kiddos bath to help fight eczema, works pretty well from what I can tell so far. Also I created a sanctuary scent for nighttime with this, lavender and cedarwood. It's very soothing and great for nighttime rest.
Rating: What a lovely versatile oil. It mixes well with so many things and brings out the best in other scents. Mixing it with NDA's sweet orange oil made a luscious scent, toning down the cloyingness of the orange leaving just a hint of it's flavor (both the bergamot and orange blended into an entirely new aroma). All in all, this is like lavender in that it goes with so many things and finishes your somewhat unfinished blended scents.
By:M., Irving, Texas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Sep-2012
Rating: This is my first time ever using bergamot, and I have to say that it is so fun to work with. It easily and wonderfully blends with citruses and sage. I'll be coming back for more of this!

Rating: Bergamot is a nice clean scent, I mix it with orange in a spray cleanser and it is so fresh and happy making! I would use it more but in body care but I am nervous about the phototoxic effects so next time I will get the bergaptene free just for body use

By:Basil, Woodbridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Very impressed with this oil, strong and exactly what you would expect. Smells just like Earl Grey!
By:Erin, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I like this one. It's lIght, fresh, crisp, and citrusy. Smells like a hot cup of Earl Grey tea with an orange slice floating in your teacup. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I found the scent a touch too light.
By:Jeannie, Kamloops, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love this scent, goes great with grapefruit EO.
By:Jalisa, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love this oil. I used it in my SLS free shower gel, it has such a great scent!
By:Anita, North York, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is a pleasant citrusy "Earl Grey" scent. Never disappoints. The perfect lightener for my fragrance combinations without skin irritations. Perfect for skin treatments!
Rating: This oil is similar to the mandarin oil in the since that it is more of a sweet citrus. Which i love becuase i really don't like the tart bitter smell of say the lemon or lime oils. This mixes well with Geranium and has made a considerable difference in my skin since i start adding it to facial steams.
By:Lorriane, Gardena, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jan-2010
Rating: I really love the light, sweet, fruity scent of this oil. The after tones of a spicy wood just finishes it off beautifully. I have used it in a few blends, but it would be beautiful on it's own too. I will be adding it to my postpartum blend to help ward off depression. I hope it works as well as I read it does. Very happy with this buy!
By:Jeannette, Red Deer, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is such a wonderful essential oil either all be itself or mixed with other essential oils! I'm so excited that I can order it in larger quantities through ND!

By:Susan, Whitby, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: NDA Bergamot is one of my staples. I use it in bath water at night, it calms me so I can get a good night's sleep. I use it diluted in lotions and oils for day use to uplift my spirits. My sister was diagnosed with mental illness a few years ago and I would make a blend for her of orange oil, bergamot and rosewood. She always smiled after using it. I made her bath bombs after I found it was the easest way for her to dispense the oils evenly. She even gave some away to people she wanted to bless.
Rating: Perfect Bergamont for all your needs. I add a bit of Bergamont to my diffusion whenever I need a bit of a perk up, or simply when I am feeling down and it does the trick. I also add it to some of my homemade household cleaning products. It gives a more comforting, warm feel to the house over lemon, pine or lavender. Great, Great, GREAT price. Thanks!

By:Jessica, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This oil is a must have for everyone... it is so gentle and so versatile. If you are a person who is angry, depressed or stressed out a lot, this oil will be your best friend. Bergamott is a well known antidepressant that soothes the nerves and gives one a fresh outlook. Oh and it smells so wonderful!!! this is that magical ingredient in Earl grey tea. also good for kidney, bladder and yeast infections in a sitz bath... I love this oil!

By:Chloe, Waterloo, Iowa Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Jun-2009
Rating: I love this oil!! I use it in my diffuser, it is so soothing because it smells like my favorite Early Gray tea!! Whenever I have people over, the first thing they ask is 'what smells so good?'
By:Michelle, Orillia, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: delicious! smells just like earl grey tea - citrusy and earthy and complex.
Rating: This Bergamot is delightful in its usefulness. I am all giggles about the fact that I can have both a floral and citrus like scent all in one oil. Furthermore, Bergamot is as useful a scent for men as it is for women, try it and you'll find a use for it. The only problem I have with this EO is that I have to hold back because it is so hard to go wrong.
Rating: This is my favorite oil.... I have worked with many. It is very versatile, and smells sooo wonderful!
By:Brandy, Lloydminster, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I mixed Sweet Almond oil with Bergamot, Niaouli, and Lavender and put about 4 or 5 drops in my dogs ears because her ears were itching and they had a bad odor, this solution cleared it up in 2 days ! She is not constantly scratching her ears, and she smells so good ! I love New Directions oils !
By:Annmarie, Tempe, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Oct-2008

By:Robert, Manassas, Virginia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Jun-2007
Rating: This is the best bergamot I've experienced and I've been using it for about 6 years! It's clean and fresh, yet has that rich 'flavour' other citrus oils lack.
By:Sandi, Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I know that it is said often but once again ND provides an EO that just remindes me of how quality their products are. You see I recently began to purchase from here becasue my old stock was running low. Bergamot was one that I had not yet ordered from ND. It was not until today when I had the chance to smell NEW DIRECTIONS Bergamot in comparassion to the brand I have been using that I realized you simply WILL NOT find a better quality product than New Directions!
I hate to toss out unused prodect - I am not sure what to do with the old Bergamot now - I can not see using it when I question the quality and I have ND's EO here taunting me to open it and sniff it again!
Light, lively, fresh, intoxicating!
Another MUST BUY!

Rating: my favourite essential oil of all time. i use it with grapefruit, neroli and texas cedarwood for day to day use to keep me smiling throughout my day, and in a spritzer with tea trea, lavender and texas cedarwood and water for acne. i haven't compared its aroma with the bergaptene free, but i usually use it on the insides of my wrists or misted under my clothes so i haven't experienced any problems with sunlight.
By:Brady, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: From a perfumery perspective this scent is quite nice. Spicy and citrusy, it adds punch to most fragrances. This is not a sweet smell though, but it may be just what you need to liven up a fragrance.
