  • Monarda didyma - Bergamot (Wild Bergamot, Beebalm)


    BERGAMOT HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    BERGAMOT BEEBALM - A FAVORITE ATTRACTION FOR BUTTERFLIES & HUMMINGBIRDS

    Bergamot (Monarda didyma), is also commonly known as Wild Bergamot, Bee Balm, Scarlet Beebalm, Crimson Beebalm, and Scarlet Monarda.

    Bergamot is a Native American mint plant that emits a strong fragrance similar to a minty-citrus scent, similar to that of the tropical tree, orange bergamot. It grows up to 3 feet high and bears the minty-scented flowers which are varied in color from pink, purple, and mauve to a rich scarlet. Bee Balm or Bergamot is a clump-forming perinnial that flowers in midsummer on branching, square stems. Leaves are aromatic as well and are opposite on the square stems and dark green with reddish leaf veins and a coarsely-toothed margin.

    This native of eastern North America, from Maine west to Ohio and south to northern Georgia. It attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. The U.S. native plant likes wet (moist) but well-drained, moderately fertile soil, partial shade to full sun and is a good plant for a wildlife garden. It requires very low maintenance and is often used in flower beds and borders. Bee Balm can be found growing in dense clusters along stream banks, thickets and ditches. Propagation is done by dividing clumps in spring or root-based cuttings in the spring. Powdery mildew, rust and leaf spot can be a problem for this plant.

    The Native Americans shared their knowledge of Bergamot with the colonists, and at one point, the colonists used it as a tea substitute for the Mid-Atlantic patriots after the Boston Tea Party (1773). The Oswego Indians are responsible for teaching the colonists how to make the tea, hence the name, "Oswego Tea".

    Note: The Bergamot herb (Monarda didyma), also known as Beebalm, is not the source of the Bergamot Essential Oil used in Earl Grey Tea. That oil comes from the Bergamot Orange (Citrus bergamia) that comes from the Mediterranean. Do not confuse them.

    BERGAMOT ORANGE ESSENTIAL OIL DESCRIPTION

    We must likely have Columbus to thank for transporting the Bergamot Orange (Citrus bergamia) tree from its native home in the Canary Islands to Italy, where it has been cultivated ever since. It is also known as Bitter Orange or Sour Orange. It is the inedible, bitter green fruit of the Bergamot tree, once called the Bergamot Pear, that gives us one of the most commonly used essential oils.

    Bergamot Oil, which is released when the peels of the fruit are cold-pressed, has a pale emerald green color and a slightly sweet, lemon-orange (citrus) scent. The oil has many uses. Its refreshing, distinctive aroma lifts the spirits, relaxes frayed nerves and even diminishes anxiety, fear and anger, while the oil itself possesses strong antiseptic and antibacterial properties.

    Adding Bergamot Oil to a Sitz Bath helps treat such urinary tract infections as urethritis and cystitis. When applied topically, the oil can help in the healing of irritated skin; thus, it can effectively treat acne and insect bites.

    Bergamot oil's most familiar culinary use is in Earl Grey Tea. Minute drops of the oil (it is safe to ingest in tiny amounts) give the tea its flavor and delightful aroma.

    BLENDING WITH OTHER OILS

    Bergamot - Uplifting Release

    Latin name: Citrus bergamia. Family name: Rutaceae. Bergamot oil is cold pressed from the fruit peel and is imported from Italy. It has a sweet & fruity scent. Bergamot oil is documented in old herbal texts. Some traditional uses: balancing nervous system, relieving anxiety and stress, lifting melancholy, for restful sleep, antiviral, cold sores, psoriasis, eczema and insect repellant. Bergamot may cause skin sensitivity to bright sunlight. A bergaptene free oil is available. Bergaptene is the constituent which increases the skin's sensitivity to sunlight. Emotional profile: to relieve helplessness, hopelessness, emptiness and grief. Blends with: Lavender, Neroli, Jasmine, Coriander, Juniper, Chamomile, Lemon, Geranium, and Cypress essential oils.

    Aromatherapy benefits of Bergamot Oil are uplifting, inspiring, and confidence-building. Bergamot oil goes particularly well with other essential oils such as Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium, Jasmine, Mandarin, Nutmeg, Orange, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Vetiver and Ylang Ylang essential oils.





    Pink Monarda didyma - Bergamot (Wild Bergamot, Beebalm)


    BERGAMOT USES, HEALTH BENEFITS, & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    MEDICINAL USES

    Crimson Beebalm is extensively grown as an ornamental plant, both within and outside its native range; it is naturalized further west in the United States and also in parts of Europe and Asia.

    Bergamot grows best in full sun, but tolerates light shade and will thrive in any moist, but well-drained soil. Several cultivars have been selected for different flower color, ranging from white through pink to dark red and purple.

    Beebalm has a long history of use as a medicinal plant by many Native Americans, including the Blackfeet. The Blackfeet Indians recognized this plant's strong antiseptic action, and used poultices of the plant for skin infections and minor wounds. An herbal tea made from the plant was also used to treat mouth and throat infections caused by dental caries and gingivitis. Beebalm is the natural source of the antiseptic thymol, the primary active ingredient in modern commercial mouthwash formulas. The Winnebago used an herbal tea made from beebalm as a general stimulant. The Native Americans first used as a carminative herbal remedy to treat excessive flatulence. Bergamot leaf tea was for colic, gas, colds, fever, stomachaches, nosebleeds, insomnia, heart trouble, and measles.

    The parts that are used are the leaves and the flowers. Today Bergamot is still used to treat colds, coughs, nausea, and sore throats. It can also be used to expel worms and gas. Bergamot is useful in treating respiratory and urinary tract infections as well. Making a tea from the leaves is used to treat fever and stomach problems, and to promote restful sleep. A leaf poultice can be used to treat headaches. Combining Bergamot with eucalyptus and tea tree oil is used in treating cold sores.

    Note: The Bergamot herb (Monarda didyma), also known as Beebalm, is not the source of the Bergamot Essential Oil used in Earl Grey Tea. That oil comes from the Bergamot Orange (Citrus bergamia) that comes from the Mediterranean. Do not confuse them.

    FOR EXHAUSTION

    Bergamot oil is restorative and can combat fatigue due to stress or illness. When it is combined with lime, another oil that is known to counter depression and exhaustion, the blend makes for a potent energy booster. Lime's tangy and lively aroma mixes well with bergamot.
    Place the two oils together in a diffuser or aromatherapy lamp.

    FOR ACNE & ECZEMA

    Bergamot is one of the best essential oils for treating skin eruptions, especially those that are stress induced. Using the oil in a facial steam bath is effective for cleansing and healing the skin.
    To make a steam bath, add oil to the bowl of steaming water. Drape a towel over your head and shoulders, and then bend your face over the bowl. For 10 to 15 minutes, breathe deeply, keeping your eyes closed. Caution: Do not use a steam bath if you have any broken facial capillaries.

  • FOR EMOTIONAL STRESS

    An aromatic bath can invigorate your body, mind and spirit, especially during times of stress. Two basic bath blends for tension and stress are Bergamot oil and Clary Sage oil, also an antidepressant.
    To prepare bath, blend both oils into the bathwater when the tub is full. These oils can also be mixed with a carrier oil, such as Grapeseed oil or Sweet Almond oil, before being added to the bath. This helps to moisturize the skin and ensures an even distribution.

  • FOR CHICKEN POX OR COLD SORES

    Bergamot oil can help ease the discomfort of chicken pox or cold sores.
    Combine oils and the water-based gel, which is used to dilute the oils. Avoid using vegetable oils, since they can prevent scabbing over. Apply several times daily.

    FOR FEVERS

  • FOR HEADACHE RELIEF

    For a quick headache relief, dilute Bergamot Essential Oil with Almond Carrier Oil (or any other favorite herbal-carrier oil) and rub it into your temples or the back of your neck. A few drops should alleviate the pain, especially if it is tension related.

  • CAUTIONS

    Like many citrus-based essential oils, Bergamot oil is considered phototoxic. If you can, purchase the oil without bergaptene, the component that is responsible for the skin's increased sensitivity to ultra-violet rays. When you use regular Bergamot oil, or any citrus-based oil, avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight for at least 6 hours following application; exposure to the sun may lead to skin discoloration, blistering or severe burning.

  • Note: The Bergamot herb (Monarda didyma), also known as Beebalm, is not the source of the Bergamot Essential Oil used in Earl Grey Tea. That oil comes from the Bergamot Orange (Citrus bergamia) that comes from the Mediterranean. Do not confuse them.


    BERGAMOT ORANGE CITRUS ESSENTIAL OIL DOSAGE

    BERGAMOT SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTION INFORMATION

    SAFETY CONCERNS FOR BEE BALM BERGAMOT

    Bergamot is generally regarded as safe when taken in the recommended doses.

    Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.

    People using the Bergamot Essential Oil (which is not from the herbal plant, but from citrus orange sources) should not expose their skin to sunlight directly after applying any dilutions containing this essential oil.

    Note: The Bergamot herb (Monarda didyma), also known as Beebalm, is not the source of the Bergamot Essential Oil used in Earl Grey Tea. That oil comes from the Bergamot Orange (Citrus bergamia) that comes from the Mediterranean. Do not confuse them.


    SAFETY INFORMATION FOR BERGAMOT ORANGE CITRUS ESSENTIAL OIL

    Essential and resin oils are volatile, fragrant materials extracted from the root, bark, wood, seed, fruit, leaf or flower of a single plant. Essential oils contain the odor, taste and medicinal properties of the plant itself, but in very concentrated form with no base oil, alcohol water or dilutants added. Bergamot Oil contains a constituent called bergaptene that increases the skin's sensitivity to ultraviolet rays found in sunlight. Common sense dictates that one avoid using Bergamot on the skin when there is a possibility of exposure to sunlight.

    When you use regular Bergamot Oil, or any citrus-based oil, avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight (and other sources of ultraviole light, such as tanning beds) for at least 6 hours following application. Exposure to sunlight can cause photo toxicity resulting in severe burns, skin discoloration, blistering, or severe burning. Even when the ingredient Bergaptene (Furocoumarin) is removed from the oil and photo toxicity is therefore minimized, it is still advisable to keep treated skin out of the sun.

    Essential oils are very potent and should always be used sparingly and in conjunction with a reliable reference (diluted with a carrier oil or base ingredient). They should never be used undiluted on the skin or other body parts.

Common sense dictates that one avoid using bergamot on the skin when there is a possibility of exposure to sunlight. Aromatherapy benefits: uplifting, inspiring, confidence-building. Bergamot oil can cause severe burns when used on a sensitive skin exposed to sunlight, since the high content of bergaptene can cause photo-toxicity and it is advisable to keep out of the sun if used on the skin. Even when the ingredient Bergaptene (Furocoumarin) is removed from the oil and photo toxicity is therefore minimized, it is still advisable to keep treated skin out of the sun. Bergamot oil can be used in the treatment of depression, stress, tension, fear, hysteria, infection (all types including skin), anorexia, psoriasis, eczema and general convalescence. When you are looking for an oil to help with depression, SAD (Seasonal Affected Disorder) or generally feeling just a bit off, lacking in self-confidence or feel shy, then consider Bergamot. It also has antiseptic qualities that are useful for skin complaints such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. In vapor therapy Bergamot oil can be used for depression, feeling fed-up, colds and flu, PMS and SAD. Bergamot oil can be used in blended massage oil, or diluted in a bath to assist with stress, tension, SAD, PMS, skin problems, compulsive eating, postnatal depression, colds and flu, anxiety, depression, feeling fed-up and anorexia nervosa. As a constituent in a blended base cream Bergamot oil can be used for wounds and cuts, psoriasis, oily skin, scabies, eczema, acne and cold sores.
