What Is Bergamot?

My favorite.

Essential oils are added to every bar of Coastal Honey Bees Soaps I make. They give the formula special bonuses in both aromatherapy value and skin care value.

Bergamot has been a favorite of mine for a long, long time.  And, for those of you wondering why you may never have heard of it, all I can do is ask you a question, “Have you ever had Earl Grey Tea?”  Bergamot is what gives EG it’s signature fragrance and flavor.  If you’ve never had that particular variety of tea, I highly recommend it.

About bergamot.

It is an herb that makes a beautiful flower – very attractive to bees and birds – and it is widely used in skin care and foods.  It gives a gentle orange flavor that is uniquely its own.  Unlike other, artificial, “big fragrances”, bergamot essential oil is subtle and much kinder to sensitive skin.  

I ONLY use essential oil that is 100% pure, and my bergamot is derived from the citrus bergamia plant.

Why it’s good in my soaps.

Bergamot, like every other pure essential oil I use, brings natural freshness, keeps bar soaps free from unwanted bacteria growth, and also works well with the other oils I use, such sweet almond oil, to nourish and protect your skin.

Where to buy? 

We are The St. Lucie West Farmer’s Market on Fountainview Blvd, every Sunday from 10am to 2pm, through April 2020.  We will be at the Christmas Bazaar in Tradition Square on December 14, 2019/  Both of those locations are in Port St. Lucie, Florida.  Our honey, candles and soaps are at The White City Mercantile in Ft. Pierce, Florida.

  1. Soap making is the perfect fit for you! Your soaps are beautiful and I would be very happy to send to my family as gifts! I’ll be ordering the dozen, and I need them sent to two addresses. I’d like all Honey Chunk – a mix of the clear and creamy. I’ll be making that payment this weekend, so my sisters can get their soaps to use for Thanksgiving. Good luck with this – but they look so great I doubt you’ll need it!
