Bergamot is a small, fragrant citrus fruit similar to an orange but colored more like a lemon. While considered inedible due to its sour bitterness, it is highly sought after for its essential oil which has been used for centuries by perfumeries, chefs (the oil is used to add fragrance and flavor), and traditional herbalists. Recent advancements in healthcare research are finding new applications for Bergamot oil, which contains biologically active flavonoids—including neoeriocitrin, neohesperidin, naringen and brutieridin.
