Bergamot leaves, also known as bee balm or Oswego tea,has a long and colorful history. Native to North America, the herb was traditionally used by indigenous tribes for a variety of purposes. The Ojibwe people inhaled crushed leaves to relieve headaches, while the Iroquois brewed a beverage from the leaves. Early American colonists adopted this practice, using bergamot leaves as a substitute for tea during the boycott of British imports.

Medicinally, bergamot leaves have been used for centuries to treat a range of ailments. The leaves contain compounds with antiseptic and carminative properties, which can soothe digestive issues and ease cramps.Additionally, bergamot leaves possess anti-inflammatory properties, making them a potential aid for reducing swelling and irritation.

Bergamot leaves are associated with love and mental clarity. The leaves are sometimes incorporated into rituals or spells intended to attract love or promote peace of mind.
