Caution: Bergamot oil must be protected from sunlight, because bergaptene*, one of its components, becomes poisonous if exposed to sunlight. That is why the oil should always be stored in dark bottles in dark places. HOWEVER We only use bergaptene free -no worries.
*NOTE: Bergapten (furocoumarin) found in bergamot has been linked with phototoxicity when exposed to excessive sunlight. Do not apply this oil (distilled exempt) onto your skin, especially during the day time or when exposed to UV light – Keep bergamot away from warmer temperatures to prevent oxidation.
