Bergamot is an essential oil produced from the rind of a bergamot orange, which is a fruit the size of an orange and the colour of a lemon.


Combine in your hand

1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
4-5 drops Bergamot Essential Oil


Rub the coconut/bergamot mix on areas of the body where shingles is visible. The pain should subside within 10 minutes or so. (Do not rub the Bergamot directly on the skin. It may burn or cause an adverse reaction. As most essential oils, the Bergamot needs to be diluted with a carrier oil such as coconut.)
