Oils such as Bergamot and Copaiba may have less of a household name, but they are no less effective. Give these guys a chance to join the essential team by adding them to blends where they can shine: make Bergamot a key ingredient in a holistic calming blend that includes Frankincense and Lavender, and use Copaiba anytime you need to relax, ground, or uplift.
