    There's a "steam distilled" version which is not phototoxic. Sometimes it's sold as "FCF Bergamot", slightly less common, a bit more expensive, and some people don't think the fragrance is quite as nice.

    Probably way more info than you want to or need to know, but another bit of trivia, there has been another obscure citrus which has been investigated in Japan as a potential replacement to bergamot for use in cosmetics. Since the essential oil is very high in linalool, it smells very similar to bergamot without the phototoxicity of bergamot. The Japanese citrus is called "Shiikuu" and originates from Kakai Island located in Kagoshima prefecture.

    With people this weekend and the topic came round briefly to essential oils. They incorrectly used the term essential in one of its definitions..but the wrong one. They thought essential to mean...it is essential that you must have or it is essential you use this. That is not correct. The term essential in relation to essential oils mean that the oil is derived from the plants essence. HENCE...essential oil.

    My boyfriend showed me something he found on the internet and bookmarked just because it was hilarious, it was an essential oils first aid kit. And the amount of things that this website claimed these oils would "cure" was insane. Apparently lavender essential oil can cure drowning.

    I have been using argan oil as a hair treatment. Along with camellia oil. Both of them work very well but I haven't heard of using argan oil for a makeup remover. That's interesting.
