Bergamot

Originating in southeast Asia, Bergamot is commercially grown in Italy, where 80% of the world’s bergamot comes from. Although occasionally used fresh for food and drink flavoring, Bergamot is most often used as an essential oil. 

 

Bergamot does have some medicinal uses, although not well known. The leaves have been used for low-grade fevers, digestive disorders, nausea, committing, colds, fevers, and headaches. The leaves have also been applied to pimples in police form. 

 

Bergamot is often confused with Wild Bergamot. Wild Bergamot, also known as Mondara or Bee Balm, however, is in the mint family.
