Bergamot Mint - Mentha citrata

I find it remarkable that this delightfully soft and gentle oil is a mint! The chemistry of Bergamot Mint is similar to Lavender and Bergamot and it is easier on the skin than other mint oils. We like to use Bergamot Mint for cooling, and in calming blends. It is emotionally uplifting and soothes the nervous system. The oil also helps to ease nausea and calms feelings of anxiety and stress.  A really great oil to help with mouth care when dealing with a sore and dry mouth. The fragrance is uplifting, clean and fresh.
