  • How sweet is this sister of Orange's! Bergamot is all about emotion, sensitivity, tenderness...
  • To round up any citrus diffusion blend (Orange, Lemon, Lime...) or any other lemony plants (Lemongrass, Citronella...)
  • If you dared dip one foot into the sea of your emotions, Bergamot takes your second foot in! Why not have a bath with a few drops of Davana as well? 
There is a tree of the family Rutaceae, called bergamot. Its fruit is the bergamot and its essential oil bears the same name. 
And that's all we know.
Indeed. When it comes to where it may originate... authors seem to like to have divergent opinions to seek clarification, whereas others seem to prefer remaining in the shadows and smell essential oil quietly. 
Some say it's a cross-species between sour orange and lime. Further it is a cross between a lemon and bitter orange. Others that is cross-species between ... brace yourselves ... citron and a crossing between grapefruit and tangerine!!
About its origins, struggling seems to take precedence over consensus.
Anyway, it is. Not bad, right?
And it is beautiful enough for it to be cultivated on a large scale though it is not a table fruit (naranjine makes it bitter). The peel or the essential oil is used to flavour many things: Earl Grey tea, Cologne, Bergamots from Nancy (candy), Moroccan tagine and many other things.
The tree looks like an orange tree: very leafy. The fruit resembles a small orange. Its shape is close to that of a pear. Its thick and smooth skin is green, like its flesh, all green as well.
So, a nice little tree with a great little fruit that gives wonderful small bottles. And that's it.
