Why Choose Lime Essential Oil?
Lime Essential Oil (citrus aurantifolia) has a tangy citrus aroma that is widely recognized due to its common culinary use. Like many citrus oils, Lime is commonly used as a cleaner and air freshener, as it is a natural disinfectant with a refreshing scent.
The long list of therapeutic uses for Lime Essential Oil includes: promoting healthy skin, relieving pain, improving respiratory function, and boosting immune function. Applying Lime Essential Oils to your skin can help reduce the symptoms of skin conditions such as acne, while mixing it with a carrier oil and massaging it into muscles and joints can help relieve pain due to arthritis. Respiratory conditions such as coughs, colds, sinus pain, and sore throats can all be relieved by the use of Lime as an Essential Oil.
Add a few drops to a bowl of hot water and inhale the steam, or mix a few drops with a carrier oil and use it as a chest rub.
