This is Pure, Therapeutic Standard, Organic Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil that has been cold expressed from the peel. The naturally occurring Furocoumarin content has been significantly reduced / removed via short path molecular evaporation to de-Furocoumarins the oil. This reduces sensitisation risk, making it suitable for use in massage and skincare blends. It is 100% pure, with no solvents, preservatives,  genetically modified or irradiated materials used in production. It is vegan friendly and Humane and it's purity is reflected in it's EU food grade certification, although we supply this oil for External use only, as it has been Sourced and bottled by members of the Aromatherapy Trade Council and only sold through TSNR approved sellers

Bergamot FCF organic essential oil has antibacterial, deodorising, refreshing, soothing, and uplifting properties which make it excellent for body skincare preparations, for ensuring healthy and vital skin. Bergamot FCF organic essential oil has a fresh, citrus and slightly spicy aroma and is powerfully refreshing, uplifting and invigorating and helps maintain a balanced mood. FCF at the end of Bergamot indicates that the furocoumarins (namely bergaptene) have been removed by steam distillation. Bergaptene free bergamot (FCF) reduces the susceptibility to photosensitizing and is the preferred bergamot for safe use in massage blends and in perfumes. Our bergamot FCF organic essential oil originates from Italy and is extracted by cold expression of the fruit peel. Bergamot FCF organic essential oil is a member of the Rutaceae family and is also known as citrus aurantium subsp and bergamia. Bergamot FCF organic essential oil blends well with geranium, jasmine, clary sage, chamomile (roman), cypress, grapefruit, lime, lemon, lavender and orange. Bergamot FCF organic essential oil is a safer alternative to traditional bergamot essential oil which has been identified as phototoxic due to its furocoumarins (notably bergapten) content.
