Bergamot FCF Essential Oil

(Citrus aurantium subspecies bergamia)
(2 customer reviews)


Few oils are as uplifting as Bergamot, with the flexibility of blending well with almost all other oils. Vibrant, citrusy and fresh, our Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) FCF essential oil is therapeutic quality and distilled in Italy. The FCF refers to “furocoumarin free”, as this oil has that component removed, to eliminate the risk of phototoxicity.

Bergamot FCF Essential Oil

Bergamot FCF Essential Oil is produced by expression of the peels of the fruit. We find the aroma of our Bergamot FCF essential oil to be fresh, light, citrusy and uplifting. The “FCF” stands for “furocoumarin free” and indicates that the phototoxic constituents, known as furocoumarins, have been removed. This is the only common instance in which an “altered” essential oil is used in aromatherapy. While it’s possible to purchase “whole” Bergamot oil  which does contain furocoumarins, FCF Bergamot is a safer alternative when using in skin applications, because it does not pose the high risk for causing severe sunburn and other manifestations of phototoxicity that  is posed by “whole” Bergamot essential oil.

Our Bergamot FCF Essential Oil blends well with many floral, herbal and citrus essential oils and with Juniper Berry essential oil.  Aromatherapists have generally described the aroma of Bergamot essential oil as having refreshing, relaxing and uplifting effects on the psyche.

    I use this oil in my diffuser and in many of my blends. Even my granddaughter loved it. I sound like a broken record. I’m always amazed by the quality of oils from this company . This oil is rich with deep sweet notes , calming and relaxing. Excellent customer service !

    Bergamot EO is incredible for my PMS symptoms which I blended with Clary Sage, Geranium, and Roman Chamomile. I purchased Clary Sage and Bergamot from Artisan Aromatics and both exceeded my expectations. Bergamot has a sweet citrus aroma and glad it can be used on sun exposed skin. I use Bergamot in my diffuser, on my lava bead necklace, and I now use daily for my “woman’s blend”and excited to try more oils from Artisan Aromatics. Excellent customer service and phenomenal EO.
