Antiseptic: Bergamot essential oil contains Linalool molecule in it which is well-known for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. And a research by many therapists has proved it to be as effective as lavender.
Antispasmodic: The same linalool has positive effect on muscular contractions. It helps to calm down spasms.
Sedative/Antidepressant: Linalool also competes with neurotransmitters in the hippocampus, which helps to control mood, reduce the blood pressure, decrease time to fall asleep and soothe tensions. As a nerve sedative it’s valuable for depression and state of anxiety.
