Bergamot Mint Essential Oil

Bergamot Mint

Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is a delightful oil to work with, and it is increasingly becoming one of my favorite essential oils to utilize. Its composition is somewhat similar to that of Lavender Essential Oil, and it makes a lovely synergistic complement or substitute for lavender in particular blends.

Bergamot Mint Oil

Bergamot Mint Oil is calming, relaxing, and is simultaneously uplifting to the spirits. Aromatically, Bergamot Mint Oil resembles a combination of bergamot, fresh herbals, lavender and a hint of mint. Although it falls within the Mentha family, the reviewed oils possess only about 1-2% menthol and only a trace amount of cineole. It is much gentler in mint intensity than peppermint with its typical 40-45% menthol and approximately 5% (or so) cineole content.

Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is sometimes referred to as Lemon Mint Oil.
