Bergamot vs Bergamot Mint

While Bergamot Mint has subtle citrus notes, it is not related to bergamot essential oil. It is a unique essential oil that is different from Bergamot and Peppermint even though its aroma is a combination of fresh mint and soft citrus. It has the uplifting energy of peppermint with the emotionally balancing presence of bergamot.

Bergamot Mint has a similar chemical makeup to lavender. You can substitute one for the other, they also blend well together in DIY recipes.

Like lavender, Bergamot Mint essential oil contains linalool and linalyl acetate which are well known for calming the mind and body. Its unique aroma is ideal for aromatic and topical essential oil blends.
