Seasonal affective disorder is a real issue this time of year with the lack of sunlight. I used to suffer with it, and then I discovered Bergamot essential oil. It was described to me by my tutor as a mood elevator, so I decided to try using it on a regular basis in January, and to my surprise it worked. I no longer succumb to SAD.
But Bergamot oil does so much more than that. It has been studied quite extensively as this entry into National Institute of Health resource show, titled Efficacy of bergamot: From anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative mechanisms to clinical applications as preventive agent for cardiovascualr morbidity, skin disease and mood alterations.
I am not going to try and break down every single point it makes, but if you have any questions on it, please head over to @alignedwithjoy on facebook and ask.
