We are our own worst critics. We often criticize ourselves harshly in ways we would never criticize another person. Self esteem drops and we experience hopelessness and helplessness. Bergamot essential oil helps us reverse this negative cycle and not only accept ourselves, but value the person we are.
What is Bergamot Good For?
Relief from stress, bergamot will bump up your mood. This very calming oil also has hormonal support for those times that the nasties attack us head-on. It might put you to sleep, so no bergamot oil when you are driving, please. Sleepless zombies rejoice, relief is near! Bergamot oil can cause sun sensitivity, so do not put it on areas of skin if you will be out in the sunshine within 72 hours. Bergamot can settle feelings of grumpies and soothe icky feelings. Bergamot is also supportive of normal healthy intestines. Yay, Happy intestines!
What do you do with it?
Put it on skin location, forehead, temples, back of neck and vitaflex points.
