Benefits of Bergamot Oil for Hair

Here are some key ways bergamot oil supports healthy hair growth:

Stimulates Follicles

Improves blood flow to follicles to encourage new growth.

Contains Antimicrobials

Its antimicrobial compounds keep scalp clean and healthy.

Reduces Inflammation

Bergamot oil reduces scalp inflammation that can impair follicle health.

Relieves Stress

Tips for Using Bergamot Oil on Hair

Follow these tips when using bergamot for optimal hair benefits:

Always Dilute in a Carrier Oil

Bergamot can irritate skin if applied directly.

Do a Skin Patch Test First

Apply a diluted drop to your inner arm to test for any reaction.

Use Organic Cold-Pressed Oil

This ensures the highest quality and purity.

Massage Oil into Scalp

Massaging increases blood flow to follicles for better absorption.

Store Properly

Keep bergamot oil in a dark glass bottle in a cool area.

Complementary Oils to Combine

Pair bergamot with other oils like:

Lavender Oil

Lavender also soothes scalp inflammation.

Rosemary Oil

Stimulates new growth and thickens miniaturized hair.

Tea Tree Oil

Its antimicrobial action enhances bergamot's effects.

Ylang Ylang Oil

Combats stress, another trigger for hair thinning.
