Lime, also called sour limes, is a fruit that has a very tart and sour citrus taste. It's often used as a seasoning in Mexican cuisine but can also be used in savory foods like marinades and sauces. The plant family that lime belongs to is called Rutaceae. 

Lime essential oil has been used in ancient civilizations such as Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Native American cultures. In ancient times it was used as an offering to various deities to gain favor from the Gods. Ancient Egyptians believed that lime could help increase fertility and ward off evil spirits, while ancient Greeks thought it would increase sexual desire. 

Lime essential oil can be used topically on your skin with the appropriate percentage of carrier oil and inhaled through diffusers or vaporizers for better results when treating ailments such as sinus congestion due to colds and viruses such as flu or common colds. Limes also contain limonene, which has antimicrobial properties, and carvone, which has anti-inflammatory properties. They are packed full of vitamin C, which helps us fight free radicals and helps our bodies produce collagen. Furthermore, they contain malic acid (which helps regulate blood pressure) and citric acid (which helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels).

Lime essential oil is the aromatic fluid from the lime tree's leaves, bark, and flowers. It is known for its uplifting aroma and its use in aromatherapy.

Modern use of Lime essential oil began when people realized how great it smelled! This excellent oil has many benefits, such as treating headaches or helping with infections. You can also use it to make beauty and skin care products!
We incorporate Lime in two of our blends, Scentonomy Inhale Exhale Citrus Organic Aromatherapy.
It's important to note that essential oils should be used with caution and diluted properly before applying them to the skin. It's recommended to perform a patch test and consult with a healthcare professional or aromatherapist before incorporating frankincense essential oil into your skincare routine.
