Bergamot FCF Distilled (Feccia) Organic Essential Oil
Benefits & How To Use
Bergamot FCF Distilled (Feccia) Organic Citrus bergamia (1177)
Bergamot has a sweet, fruity and slightly spicy aroma with antiseptic and cooling qualities. It is a marvellously cheering and balancing oil, which can help pave the way for a restful night. The naturally expressed oil is ‘phototoxic’, which means that if you put oil on the skin and then go into direct sunlight it will affect the skin’s pigmentation.
What does FCF mean?FCF stands for ‘furocoumarin-free’which means that the oil does not contain furocoumarins (the components that cause photosensitivity and phototoxicity). In some Bergamot oils the furocoumarins are removed however distilled Bergamot oils are naturally free of these components as they have a low volatiliy and therefore do not appear in the distilled oil.
This is a distilled oil which naturally contains no furo-coumarins.

I find Oshadhi oils to be simply exquisite. Their fragrances are so rich and full bodied. It is easy to immediately discern the difference their insistence on extraction by slow distillation makes. The larger molecules make the oils like beautifully aged, smooth fine wines! Last week I ordered 1ml o ...
