A harmonizing blend of Bergamot, Lavender and Geranium creates a sense of well being by lifting melancholy, relieving anxiety and stress, and balancing emotional extremes. This blend can be beneficial for premenstrual syndrome.

A lotion consisting of 3 drops Bergamot with 4 drops of Lavender, 2 drops Peppermint, 2 drops Basil, and 1 drop Neroli (or Chamomile) tea in a small amber bottle with a carrier of 1 T. vegetable oil or unscented lotion added to it is very effective for digestion. Use this lotion 1/2 hour before meals by applying to the stomach and back of hands. Use sparingly, as this is a concentrated blend.

Topically, some use bergamot oil to treat the flaky skin and patchiness associated with acne, eczema, psoriasis and vitiligo. Bergamot oil decreases sun sensitivity, making it a common ingredient in tanning lotions to speed the tanning process.

This psoralen photodermatotoxicity or light-induced toxic injury to the skin, also increases the chance of sunburn, so  topical application of it is discouraged. While it is suggested do not use bergamot externally if you have very sensitive skin. I even suggest finding furcumarin-free bergamot oil since this substance in bergamot oil appears to cause these reactions.
