Lime Essential Oil
Lime Essential Oil is used for its energizing, fresh and cheerful aroma. It is well known in folklore for its ability to cleanse, purify and renew the spirit and the mind. It’s sweet yet tart, citrusy aroma blends well with so many other oils. Its aroma is especially concentrated, and a little goes a very long way.
With the exception of floral Neroli Essential Oil, cold pressed Lime Essential Oil is the most aromatically potent of the fruity citrus oils. Including a few drops of Lime Essential Oil is a must when creating citrus blends for my diffuser or body care products.
