Botanical name: Citrus latifolia Tanaka
Country of origin: Brazil
Botanists believe that most lime trees originated in Burma and India, and that they 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 and purify; it is believed to provide cleansing aromatherapy for the soul, which in turn is believed to facilitate clearer mental energy and enable better decision–making.
Lime Oil is cold pressed from the fruit's peel, which tends to be thinner than lemon or orange peel, and which is covered with tiny oil-filled sacs. Its aroma is sharp, mouth-wateringly citrusy and fresh.
Quick and easy recipes:
Lime Essential Oil has a crisp, refreshing citrus scent that has been used by aromatherapists for its uplifting and revitalizing character. It acts as an astringent on the skin where it is applied to help balance oily areas.
To help support the body's systems while fighting a cold or flu, try inhalations and daily baths with 2 drops of Lime Essential Oil and 4 drops of Ginger Essential Oil.
To promote feelings of mental alertness, try an inhalation using a mist spray comprised of 30 drops each of Lime, Eucalyptus, Ginger, Grapefruit, and Bergamot Essential Oil, as well as 25 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil in 120 ml of pure water. This mist can be sprayed over the head and inhaled deeply to boost mental energy and wakefulness.
For a vibrantly zesty and spicy air freshener, combine 10 drops of Lime Essential Oil with 35 drops of Caraway, 20 drops each of Anise, Cinnamon, and Ginger, and 15 drops of Clove in 120 ml of pure water.
This essential oil may contain phototoxic properties and it is suggested to avoid exposure to the sun after application to the skin. We advise to consult a physician prior to using this oil. Use well diluted. For topical application, a skin test is recommended prior to use. Avoid contact with eyes. If pregnant or on medication, consult a health-care practitioner before using.
