The Oil of Self-Acceptance: Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot is called the “oil of self-acceptance” due to its ability to help support those in need of optimism and self-love. It can help break through self limiting beliefs and can promote confidence. It is my favorite to diffuse while I work or sleep. I usually combine bergamot with roman chamomile and its makes a room smell like a warm cup of tea. I have that combo diffusing as I write this! It also blends well with lavender, lemon, cypress, and eucalyptus. It also has many other bonus uses, check it out!
