  Bergamot Mint
Mentha citrata, conventionally farmed, steam-distilled leaves, USA.
• Gently fruity/floral.
• De-stressing.
• Perfumery.
• Deodorizing.


Hard to believe this delightful oil is a mint! Soft, gently floral in aroma, it reminds me of a blend of our Bulgarian Lavender, with just touches of citrus added. I love it in the aromalamp…not energizing and stimulating like the other mint oils we carry, but gently de-stressing. My research doesn’t find very many therapeutic benefits for this lovely oil, it is mostly used by perfumers for a soft heart note. It’s high in linalol and linalyl acetate (like the lavenders) and is much safer on the skin than other mint oils.

Bergamot mint’s lighthearted floral notes make it perfect for use in the bath, or in a relaxing massage blend. It makes a wonderful perfume, either alone, or with a touch of Vetiver to anchor it. Unlike many of the middle notes, it is complex enough to wear alone, but will need frequent reapplying. When musing on its potential the phrase that comes to mind is “blythe spirit”… if you are looking for an non-citrus essential oil to brighten the spirits this is the one!

I’ve recently had feedback from clients who have used this delightful EO to deodorize musty closets, cellars, etc. I’ve not tried this application yet, but it certainly is worth keeping in mind.

SAFETY: From a safety standpoint, used in proper dilutions, it is neither irritating, sensitizing, nor photosensitizing, so much safer to use than either of the oils whose name it bears. However, Robert Tisserand advises that maximum dermal use 5.7%.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 1 to 2 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.

    I blend mine with Grapefruit and diffuse it. I love the aroma of those 2 oils together.
