The bright and zesty aroma of Bergamot is known to have mood-boosting properties, which can help to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. This makes Bergamot a great choice for people who want to start their day positively or who need a pick-me-up in the middle of a busy day. Bergamot is one of the most common fragrances in perfumes and candles thanks to its strong, complex, unique scent profile. The rind is also a critical ingredient used in Earl Grey tea, contributing to both the scent and taste.
