Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Bergamot essential oils have a famous flavor and scent responsible for the distinct taste in Earl Grey Teas. Bergamot essential oils are derived from a small citrus fruit that grows on small trees about 15 feet high. With smooth oval leaves, this tree bears small round fruit that ripens from green to yellow, looking like a miniature orange. Bergamot tropical trees originally came from South East Asia but were introduced to Italy and Europe, and are found in Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria as well as the Ivory Coast. The flowers are star shaped on this citrus tree. The fruit from whence come Bergamot essential oils looks like a cross between grapefruit and oranges but can be pear shaped. Commercially, Bergamot essential oils are obtained from plants grown in southern Italy and the Ivory Coast.

The fruit peel of the nearly ripe fruit from this plant Citrus Bergamia (botanical name) is used from which to extract Bergamot essential oils by cold compression. Bergamot is part of the citrus family Rutaceae. Bergamot essential oils are thin oils that varies in color from light yellowish green to a yellowish brown. When Bergamot essential oils are aged, it turns a browning olive color. The scent has a middle note, and its strength varies between low to medium.

The fragrance of Bergamot essential oils is a citrus scent; it is fresh, and sweet, fruity and has a slightly spicy balsamic undertone.
