Bergamot Essential Oil review

I received this item in exchange for an honest review. 

For Christmas this year I thought it would be nice to make my sister in law some bath salts. I made a bunch and then tested them out myself. They're quite lovely but seem to be lacking something as they didn't foam or fizzle or such. Still I enjoyed them and I know she has as well. I found a few different recipes online. Essentially a simple recipe consists of Epsom salt and either coconut oil or glycerin. You can add in a few drops of food coloring. Also add in a few drops of essential oils of your choice. 

I made three separate kinds. Lavender, which I dyed blue and purple. Peppermint which of course I made for a nice Christmas treat and dyed green and red. I layered it with alternating colors when filling the jars. I added in a little bit of plain white as well just to make it pretty. Speaking of these jars I picked them up at Family Dollar and they were only a dollar a piece. They're only plastic but each jar took about four cups or so which was much more than I expected. Lastly I layered plain white salts with orange which I scented with the bergamot oil I will be reviewing today.

I received this oil two days after it shipped. I was surprised by how quickly it got to me. It turns out Simply Earth is a Wisconsin company and they are literally only a few hours away from me. I'm happy to be able to review a local product just as I'm always supportive of American businesses. 

I used this oil to make orange dreamcicle inspired bath salts and the result was amazing. This oil smells absolutely wonderful. I made some for my sister in law and she reported back the salts were luxurious. She loved how it smelled like her favorite earl grey tea which I didn't realize is made from bergamot. 

This oil is $7 for a 15mL bottle. More information and purchasing options are available on their web site at

This oil is also available on Amazon for $6.99 plus $2.99 for shipping.
