Organic Bergamot

(Citrus bergamia)

Organic Bergamot essential oil is produced in the area around Bergamo, in northern Italy, hence its name. It is also extensively cultivated in Calabria region in southern Italy. It is a type of bitter orange with greenish-yellow skin. Its pulp is too sour to eat, so the fruit is produced soley for the extraction of the essential oil from the peel. 
Bergamot was one of the ingredients in the earlier formula of "eau du Cologne" in the 18th century. It has a delightful aroma; fresh and young with strong citrus notes and a sweetness that evaporates quickly.
