LIME is cold pressed from the peel of fresh limes, giving it a citrusy, tart, yet sweet aroma.


LIME can be used internally, topically, and aromatically.


When using LIME topically, dilute for young or sensitive skin. LIME is considered to be photosensitive; thus, you should avoid sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after topical application.


When paired with other oils, LIME can enhance the benefits of those other oils as well as create balance and synergy among Essential Oils in a blend. LIME blends well with BERGAMOT, BLACK PEPPER, and ROSEMARY and can be found in the FOCUS BLEND and the CLEANSING BLEND.


LIME FOR THE BODY


LIME Essential Oil can support your body in many amazing ways. Here are just a few of them:

Can be used as an aromatic, topical, and internal cleanser.

Supports a healthy immune system.

Supports relief from discomfort associated with a cough or throat discomfort.

Promotes relief from feelings of congestion and supports open airways.

When applied with a carrier oil, LIME promotes healthy looking skin.

Add to shampoo to promote a healthy scalp.

Promotes a stable body temperature.

Can be purifying to the skin when used topically.

LIME FOR KITCHEN CLEANING


Here are some tips for using LIME in your kitchen cleaning.


When cleaning or washing down your refrigerator, add a few drops of LIME to the water you are using to rinse the fridge.

Add to a cotton ball and place in the bottom of a trash can for freshness.

Fill sink with water, add 3 drops LEMON and 3 drops LIME, add produce, and let soak to cleanse.


Or this multiple use soft scrub for all around the house:

9 Drops Lime Essential Oil

LIME AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT


LIME is a very uplifting Essential Oil that promotes feeling of happiness, cheer, and courage.

Those who would benefit from using LIME for emotional support are people who are dealing with the following emotions:


Apathy

Resignation

Use LIME topically, aromatically, and internally for emotional support.


LIME is also great to promote feelings like “get up and go” or for an increase in self-esteem.
