What do you know about Bergamot?

Well, the Mama Detox finished off the week as our BEST SELLER!  And, do you know what one of our favorite scents in the Mama Detox is? Bergamot.

Before we started making our Bath Kits we had absolutely no idea what bergamot was, so here's a little tutorial.

Bergamot is a type of orange, the fruit of the Citrus bergamia plant.  It is primarily grown in Italy and around the Mediterranean.  The fruit looks more like a lime or a lemon than an orange and has a very distinct scent... citrus notes with a slightly floral sweet aroma.

Bergamot is used in a variety of products, perfumes, creams, lotions & soaps, is widely used as a citrus flavoring agent, and English teas.

Bergamot essential oil is also touted for:

  • Improving acne
  • It's ability to soften and tame curly hair
  • Soothing scalp irritation
  • Elevated mood
  • Stress reduction
  • Reducing pain & inflammation

So, make sure to take a big whiff of the Essentials next time you're taking your Mama Detox and see if you can pick out that citrusy scent of bergamot!

Did you have any idea that bergamot was a fruit??  The first time we heard of it we thought it was a flower for sure!
