Bergamot Essential Oil is deeply relaxing, restorative, and calming. This essential oil is very pleasing and especially uplifting to the spirit, and can help diffuse feelings of anger or frustration.
Bergamot Essential Oil is one of the best oils when looking to support the nervous system to help manage anxiety.
