What is bergamot oil and what does the production process look like?

It is an essential oil obtained from the peel of the fruit of the bergamot tree (Citrus bergamia). It reaches a height of up to 4 meters. The fruit is harvested from December to March. Older trees (over 12 years old) can bear up to 800 fruits. From this amount you can get from 0.5 kg to 1 kg of oil. It is in southern Italy, in the Calabria region, that this plant is grown. However, India is considered the motherland of the bergamot tree. Bergamot oil has a pleasant scent characterized by citrus freshness. It has a bitter taste. It ranges in color from dark yellow to green. Its color depends on the season in which bergamot oranges are harvested. The oil is obtained by pressing (pressing) the outer part of the skin. In the initial production process, peelers are used to separate the peel from the fruit. Then the raw material is subjected to steam distillation. This is how the highest quality oil is obtained. In addition, less valuable oils are also produced, including from raw materials left over from the first pressing and from fruit that has fallen from trees naturally or as a result of weather conditions.
