Earl Grey Tea Fragrance OilEarl Grey Tea Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Earl Grey Tea Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is a sweet, refreshing aroma of herbal notes uplifted by the subtle scent of citrus.  Did you know? While Earl Grey Tea is a distinctly English refreshment, it is not of European origin!  Flavored teas and scented teas are unique in origin to China.  Chinese tea masters were constantly experimenting with different blends of herbs, oils, and teas to create more exotic flavors.  This not only captured the attention of local markets, but drove international trade with travelers who wished to return from China with distinct Eastern flavors.  Earl Grey tea is named for Charles Grey, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1830-1834.  The tea was a  gift from a Chinese tea master.  The bergamot flavor was added to cover up the lime taste of the well water at the Earl of Grey’s estate.  Earl Grey’s wife loved the tea so much that she had it made exclusively for her personal and social use.

Bergamot FragranceBergamot Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Bergamot fragrance comes from the bergamot orange. Strange name seeing as it’s not actually orange- more of a yellow-ish green but it is the size of an orange. Hmm. Well, it is a citrus fruit. its Latin name is Citrus bergamia. ‘Bergamot’ comes from the Italian bergamotta or ‘prince of pears.’ …but it isn’t a pear, either. Most of the world’s bergamot oranges are grown in southern Italy, the rest in southern France. It is also grown in southern France and southern Turkey.  The flesh of this fruit is not edible- not that you would ever eat fragrance or essential oils, anyway. Oil made from pressing the peel is used for a variety of flavorings, most famously, Earl Grey Tea and Turkish Delight. It is often made into marmalade in Italy. Bergamot oil is even used in smokeless tobacco products as flavoring. It takes about 100 bergamot oranges to make 3 oz of bergamot oil. For this reason, pure bergamot oil is highly coveted. Bergamot oil has been an ingredient in fragrance since as early as 1714.
