Bergamot FCF Essential Oil Is Safe In The Sun
Bergamot FCF Essential Oil is a citrus aromatherapy oil. But, unfortunately, most citrus essential oils are phototoxic, which means they react badly to direct sunlight.
People have been known to sustain burns when wearing certain citrus essential oils whilst out in strong sunlight, even when the essential oils have been properly diluted.
However, unlike Organic Lemon Essential Oil, Organic Lime Essential Oil and Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil, this Bergamot FCF Essential Oil is harmless in the sun. This means that Bergamot FCF Essential Oil can be worn on your skin, (after being properly diluted in a good carrier oil), even if you intend to immediately expose your skin to the sun.
Bergamot FCF Aromatherapy Oil would be photo toxic if it weren’t for the fact it is furocoumarin-free, (FCF). More specifically, bergaptene is the furocoumarin within Bergamot Essential Oil, which is phototoxic.
Furocoumarin occurs naturally within Bergamot Essential Oil. However, it is possible to isolate this constituent and remove it, thus making Bergamot FCF Essential Oil safe to wear in the sun.
Cautions & Contraindications
Diabetics must use Bergamot FCF with caution as it may affect blood sugar control.
It’s important to monitor blood sugar levels often if you decide that the many benefits of using this essential oil outweigh the possible side effects.

Really lovely oil. Very uplifting yet calming. I have only used it in my oil burner so far but plan to use it in lots of other ways after reading all of the great information on the website.
