Why Bergamot Works

Bergamot is similar to lavender in regards to its relaxing properties to help reduce stress and anxiety. However, studies on Bergamot’s capability to combat stress and anxiety are quite limited. However, studies prove Bergamot’s strength in relaxing with its aroma, as shown in a 2017 study when used in a mental health treatment center’s waiting room.

Bergamot also helps to level out emotions, discard negative emotions, fatigue, and even reduce saliva cortisol (cortisol is a hormone that is associated with stress) shown in a study that was published in 2015.

Anxiety and depression can sometimes lead to emotional eating, and while this may bring about a temporary sense of comfort and relief, eventually it piles on even more negative emotions like guilt and self-criticism.

Bergamot oil offers a pleasant way to break this vicious cycle.

A recent study examined the effects of just 15 minutes of Bergamot oil aromatherapy. Not only did the study’s participants self-report improved positive emotions and increased energy, but researchers discovered that Bergamot oil had an instant physiological benefit. To measure stress more objectively, they took saliva samples and tested them for cortisol – a hormone that is released as a stress response – and found that those who inhaled Bergamot oil had much lower cortisol levels than those who did not.
