Bergamot Mint Essential Oil
Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is also known as Mentha citrata, but it doesn’t contain Menthol. It is, however, made from the plant material collected from a herb, which is a member of the mint family.
Despite its name, Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is not related to Bergamot FCF Essential Oil. Instead, Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is made from the leaves of the Mentha citrata plant, which is a flowering, perennial herb.
Just to make things a little more confusing, Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is also known as Orange Mint Essential Oil.
Bergamot Mint Essential Oil makes for a good alternative to Peppermint Essential Oil, especially for oral hygiene. This is particularly true for those who find Peppermint Essential Oil too strong. By contrast, Bergamot Mint Essential Oil is mild with a subtle flavour.
