Topical and aromatic use only. Do not use on children, if pregnant, and keep out of pet's reach. Bergamot Oil is phototoxic. Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds for up to 18 hours after applying Bergamot Oil to the skin. Bergamot Oil must not be applied to the skin undiluted. Serious skin burning or damage can occur if Bergamot Oil is applied and the skin is exposed to the sun or a tanning booth. It may be used safely (no phototoxic response) on the skin in a blend at no more than .4 percent (approx. 1-2 drops per 1 oz. / 30 ml of carrier oil). If you are using the oil on an area of your skin that has no exposure to the sun or UV light, then there is no safety concern. Older oxidized oil can increase the potential for skin irritation. Always test for skin sensitivity prior to use. Do not ingest orally and keep out of eyes, ears and nose. Excessive use of any oil can lead to sensitization.
