Wind Down at Night with Bergamot Essential Oil

After busy summer days at work or at play, it's important to wind down. Stress comes in many forms, even fun. Support your body's optimal health and wellness and make daily relaxation a top priority.

Wondering how? Try an aromatherapy Relaxing Bedtime Blend with bergamot (Citrus aurantium var. bergamia) essential oil. The oil's fresh, citrus fragrance is a great mood support and can be soothing in a bath or massage blend.*

Relaxing Bedtime Blend
Clary sage Salvia sclarea: 3-drops
Bergamot Citrus aurantium var. bergamia: 10-drops
Benzoin resinoid Styrax benzoin: 2-drops
Chamomile Matricaria recutita (German) or Chamaemelum nobile (Roman): 2-drops

Use 2-3-drops in bath, or dilute with 1-oz massage oil and rub on the chest.
