IGD can also potentially cause depression, social difficulties, ADHD and substance abuse. The fruit of the bergamot plant (Citrus bergamia) can be used for bergamot essential oil (BEO) by squeezing and cold pressing the fruit skin. Bergamot essential oil is widely used as aromatherapy to improve mood and symptoms of stress disorders. The aromatic materials will stimulate the autonomic nervous system so the receptors will receive BEO containing linalyl acetate and linalool. The odor will be delivered to the limbic system so that it can improve mood and trigger the release of hormones serotonin and endorphins
