Bergamot Pure Essential Oil: This fresh and fruity pure citrus oil has a sophisticated and uplifting scent. It blends beautifully with many other scents and is the perfect top note. Bergamot has antiseptic properties and is sometimes used as a skin astringent, however it is also a photosensitizer and shouldn't be used on skin that will be exposed to direct sunlight.
Country of Origin: Italy
Botanical Name: citrus bergamia Part: Peel

Hi Kenda! The Bergamot Essential Oil does contain bergaptene, so it can be a photosensitizer when used in leave-on products, but because melt & pour and cold process soaps are wash-off products, you can safely use this essential oil in your soaps.
