Bergamot essential oil can be helpful for general achiness with inflammation especially if accompanied with depression or dysregulation of the mental and emotional body. It increases circulation and supports tissue healing. Digestively Bergamot is a true ally: It calms the stomach, treats nausea, food stagnation, and poor digestion or assimilation.

It helps with infections, is reported to lower blood pressure (most likely via the decrease in stress response physiologically), and may help reduce fevers.

For most who use Bergamot essential oil, it creates a feeling of being refreshed and renewed and fundamentally balanced body and mind. It is known for uplifting negative moods and has been used for hundreds of years, cross culturally to treat depression, and relieve lethargy, nervousness, and insomnia.

Bergamot has an uncanny way of bringing equilibrium and equanimity to the nervous system and to the Soul. A key oil in supporting any type of deregulatory condition, especially at the level of the mental and emotional body. When used on point Shenmen in the ear (instructions on the Energetics of Bergamot audio associated with this lesson), it can literally reset the entire nervous system within two minutes. It connects right and left hemispheres of the brain, releases fascial holding patterns in the body, and powerfully opens perspective.

There is no match for Bergamot in relation to opening perspective and releasing conflict bound in thoughts centered around injustices. In turn, this allows space for ease and calm to emerge. If you’ve ever experienced the gifts from “non-violent communication,” the gifts of Bergamot used thoughtfully are much the same. It is one of the most appropriate plant allies in this time of great polarization.
