INCI Name: Citrus latifolia tanaka (Lime) Peel Oil
Botanists believe that most lime trees originated in Burma and India, and were brought to the Mediterranean region more than a thousand years ago by early Arab traders. Lime Essential Oil is considered the most aromatically potent of the citrus oils. Historically, Lime has been used to prevent sailors long at sea from developing scurvy.
Lime Essential Oil is traditionally well known for its ability to cleanse, purify and renew the spirit and the mind, and is said to be effective in cleansing the aura, enabling better decision–making.
Cold–pressed from the fruit’s peel, which tends to be thinner than lemon or orange peel, it is full of tiny oil-filled sacs. Its aroma is sharp and mouth-wateringly citrusy and fresh.
Lime Essential Oil has a crisp, refreshing citrus scent that has been used by aromatherapists for its uplifting and revitalizing properties. It acts as an astringent on skin where it is applied to help clear oily skin.
To support the body’s systems while fighting a cold or flu, try inhalations and daily baths with 2 drops Lime and 4 drops Ginger.
Lime blends well with: Bergamot, Cedarwood, Geranium, Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon, Mandarin, Neroli, Nutmeg, Orange, Palmarosa, Petitgrain, Rose, Rosemary, Rosewood, Vetiver and Ylang Ylang.

Always dilute appropriately before applying to the skin. Do not use if pregnant or if taking medication without consulting with your health-care practitioner.
