Bergamot FCF Essential Oil FAQ
Why is it called Bergamot FCF?
Our Bergamot essential oil is called Bergamot FCF because it is “Furocoumarin Free” (FCF). Furocoumarins are phototoxic compounds that increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight and UV rays. Rocky Mountain Oils’ Bergamot FCF oil has undergone a process to remove all furocoumarins, which means it will not increase your risk of sunburn or skin damage if worn outside.
What is the main benefit of Bergamot essential oil for mood?
The primary benefit of Bergamot essential oil for mood is its ability to uplift and relieve depression. Often called “Nature’s Anti-Depressant,” the scent of Bergamot helps balance your emotions, reduce anxiety, and help with feelings of loneliness, sadness, grief, or anger. Studies show that Bergamot essential oil also helps with postpartum depression and sleep issues.
Can you use Bergamot oil for hair?
Yes, you can use Bergamot oil for hair as long as you dilute it with a carrier oil to avoid potential irritation. You can also add a few drops to your regular shampoo or conditioner to boost hydration. When applied to the scalp, Bergamot FCF helps balance oil (sebum) production, reduce dandruff, and restore shine to dry, damaged, lifeless hair. It may also help slow hair loss and stimulate new hair growth.
Who should not use Bergamot oil?
Bergamot oil may lower blood sugar in certain individuals. If you have hypoglycemia or diabetes, talk to your physician before using Bergamot FCF as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood sugar or interfere with certain medications. Bergamot FCF essential oil is also not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers.
