Citrus fruits are loved by many. They are juicy and sweet, yet tangy in taste and refreshing in scent. Not only are citrus fruits a delicious treat, they are also packed full of nutrients that provide tons of health benefits. It is commonly known, citrus fruits are high in vitamin Cwhich is an important antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals and encourages the production of collagen. Citric acid also comes from citrus fruits, which helps kill bacteria and other viruses. Citrus fruits in general have many benefits to skin health, including correcting hyper-pigmentation, unclogging pores, and exfoliation, which all lead to a brighter complexion and younger-looking skin.
Let’s dive into a few of our favorite citrus ingredients:
Bergamot is a very unique and uncommon citrus fruit. You may have heard of it in relation to Earl Grey tea, as it is the fruit behind the flavor; but still, what is bergamot? It is a citrus fruit that comes from the citrus bergamia plant. It is found most commonly in the Mediterranean. From the rind of this fruit, the bergamot essential oil is extracted. This oil is often used for Earl Grey tea, fragrances, and skincare products. This unique citrus oil is full of many benefitsthat should not be overlooked.
So, what are the benefits of Bergamot Oil:
At The Yellow Bird, we love to add bergamot oil into our products as we are confident in its ability to heal, purify, and renew the skin.
Lime is a citrus fruit that is not nearly as mysterious as bergamot. We add limes to many dishes and drinks. While this citrus fruit is a lot more popular, how well do you really know limes beyond common consumption? That’s right, limes are packed full of nutrients that can also benefit the skin when applied topically.
What are the Benefits of Lime:
We love including lime in our ingredients, as we stand behind the main benefits and nutrients that it provides to the skin.
Oranges are a classic staple in the kitchen. Naturally sweet, they can be enjoyed by themselves, as a juice and as an ingredient in many other recipes. Oranges are high in nutrients and antioxidants that reduce inflammation and fight bacteria.

We not only love oranges to snack on or to quench our thirst at breakfast, we actively include orange oil as an ingredient in several of our products.
