Effects on the brain
The scent of bergamot causes your brain to produce so-called neurotransmitters. These substances reduce your response to stressful situations. The scent of bergamot can also reduce depressive moods and improve sleep quality. Research shows that depressive moods in women after childbirth can be relieved by the scent of bergamot and sleep quality can be improved. Besides reducing depressive moods, the scent of bergamot is also anxiety reducing.
