Bergamot is a photosensitizer (increases the skin reaction to sunlight and makes it more likely to burn) and the photosensitizing effect can last for several days.
We offer regular Bergamot and Bergaptene-free Bergamot; the latter should be considered when the oil will be used for skin application. Since soap lather only remains on the skin for a few seconds, regular Bergamot could be used in soaps. Blends well with chamomile, lavender, neroli and rosemary. Flash point: 136.4F.
