Bergamot has impressive analgesic properties that can help reduce tension. Scientists believe that linalool, a major component in bergamot, may inhibit the secretion of compounds that prompt pain through nerve impulses. For pain relief, combine five drops of bergamot oil with a teaspoon of carrier oil and massage it into areas that feel sore or tense.
