I’m excited to introduce you to a lesser known essential oil. My first experience with this was during convention in 2017 on an airplane. One of my business partners has panic attacks when she flies, she opened up her purse and had a tiny sample vial of Bergamot. I fell in love with the smell instantly. I had no idea how light and clean it was and inviting. I can definitely tell why it’s considered an uplifting and calming oil.
doTERRA Bergamot is a citrus oil with a light floral scent. It is unique because of it’s uplifting and calming properties. These unique properties make it ideal to help ease anxious or sad feelings.
We’re going to start our cross continental move in a few weeks feeling calm and free of stress by diffusing doTERRA Bergamot essential oil and carrying it on our multiple plane rides. This delicate citrus plant was used by the Italians for years to reduce feelings of stress and to soothe and rejuvenate skin.
