This Lime Essential Oil is extracted from the peel of the unripe or ripe Mexican lime, also known as West Indian or sour lime. It has a sharp, citrus smell and pale yellow to light olive colour. When used in an oil burner, it stimulates a tired mind and helps ease anxiety, depression, and apathy.
Lime oil is also helpful for colds, sore throats, flu, arthritis, rheumatism, poor circulation, obesity and cellulite. It can reduce oiliness and acne and is useful for treating insect bites and cuts. However, cold-expression lime oil may cause photosensitivity and skin irritation. Limes have been used to prevent Vitamin C deficiency in sailors on long voyages since its introduction to Europe by the Moors
