Bergamot essential oil is part of the citrus family and an old hybrid between lemon and bitter orange. It is grown mostly in southern Italy and has an elegant scent with tart and sweet facets with floral and spicy undertones. It is a quintessential ingredient in colognes and an ideal oil to freshen a room.
Essential oils are part of the 'sustainable toolkit': they are natural and biodegradable, come in a highly concentrated form so a small bottle goes a long way, this allow us to create lots of products at home.
Their uses include:
- as a room scent (to replace synthetic commercial products) using a diffuser or burner or by creating a simple spray from a few drops of essential oils in a spray bottle filled with water and alcohol.
- as a surface cleaner due to their strong antibacterial properties (lemon, tea tree, lavender etc) typically using a mixture of white wine vinegar, water and essential oils (or with baking soda).
- in natural cleaning/detergent products to add a fresh natural scent ('eco eggs' in the washing machine, dryer balls , directly in the water for ironing, etc)
- as body and bath products or perfumes
- as natural repellent for mites, mosquitos, etc.
- as small remedies (lavender for burns, eucalyptus for cold, etc)
- for wellbeing in general, leveraging the benefits of the oils on our emotions which is an area of growing research.
All of the oils are imported from different parts of the world, directly from producers, and are bottled in The Nature of Things workshop in Ireland. You can see the country of origin on each product.
