Truly a superb quality oil – with a sharper, more limey aroma than many other lime oils as it is extracted (cold-pressed) from lime rind.
Citrus medica 100% cold pressed top therapeutic grade essential oil, from Mexico.
This is truly a superb quality oil – totally authentic and has a sharper, more limey aroma than other lime oils.
Note: most lime oil is steam distilled from the whole fruit and thus is much cheaper to produce, but has a different quality to it as well.
Lime is used for it’s fresh invigorating properties.
It can be used to improve mood as well as a mild expectorant – use as an inhalation to clear the head and sinuses, or in the burner to create a holiday atmosphere.
A very small amount is all you need, mixed with a carrier oil (see my other listings) Use in creams, lotions, ointments, inhalations, and in personal massage blends.
NOTE: do not use undiluted.
Small amounts required only.
Extend the life of your cold-pressed oils by storing in the refrigerator. Otherwise use within 6 months, or skin sensitisation may occur.
Do not use undiluted on the skin – blend to no more than a 2% concentration, due to potential to increase the photosensitivity of the skin (ie you might sunburn more easily) NOT TO BE TAKEN ORALLY.
