Interesting Bergamot Oil Info
Bergamot essential oils are now commonly employed in the place of more expensive, dried bergamot peels. The oil is used in the food and confectionery industry as flavoring for liqueurs, aromatic teas, candies and candied fruits. The juice and skin of the fruit are also used in the agro-alimentary industry for the production of soft drinks, jellies and jams. Bergamot also gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavor.
Bergamot was the base for the original French "eau de cologne"; it is still used in many modern-day perfumes to fix the aromatic bouquet and to add a top note of freshness to the fragrance. In the 18th century bergamot bark was shaped and dried into elaborately decorated boxes, which were highly prized among the French aristocracy.
Bergamot essential oil, a citrus, is not to be confused with the herb bee balm (Monarda didyma).
