10ml Lime Essential Oil
Lime Essential Oil has a gorgeous fresh, zesty fragrance and is popular for its energising, uplifting, revitalising energy. It is well known for its ability to cleanse, purify and renew.
This Lime Essential Oil is obtained from Citrus aurantifolia, also known as Mexican or West Indian lime, as well as sour lime. The oil is extracted from the peel of the unripe skin by cold expression or from the peel and/or the whole ripe fruit by steam distillation.
- Lime oil, when used in an oil burner, stimulates a tired mind and helps ease anxiety, stress and depression.
- It is useful to reduce fevers associated with colds, sore throats, and flu. It increases immunity while easing coughs, bronchitis, sinusitis, and asthma.
- It is said to be helpful for arthritis, rheumatism and poor circulation.
- Good for the skin; it reduces oiliness and acne, helps with insect bites and cuts. However, the oil that is obtained by cold expression (as opposed to steam distillation) can cause photosensitivity and irritate the skin.
If applied in a massage blend, wait 12 hours before exposing skin to strong UV light or sunlight. Essential oils are powerful and highly concentrated. They can be harmful if not used carefully so it is important to use them safely. Do not take any oils internally and do not apply to the skin undiluted. Do not use any oils during pregnancy or if you have any medical issues without taking medical advice or under the guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils on children.
