Product Overview

Our organic distilled Lime essential oil is soft, zesty and tart with a touch of sweetness – it will keep much longer and will not oxidize as rapidly as cold pressed citrus oils. Excellent in natural perfumery and a truly fine organic citrus!

The origin of Lime, Citrus aurantifolia, is believed to be the East Indian Archipelago where it is found on almost all its islands. From there it is believed to have spread east to the west coast of South America, and west to East Africa, Iran, Egypt, Arabia, and southern Europe. It is very likely that Lime seeds from Europe were brought to the West Indies and Florida after the Americas were colonized, and from there Limes spread to Texas, Mexico, California, Central and South America.[1],[2],[3]

Like many Citrus oils, the invigorating aroma of Lime oil is comforting and familiar yet thoroughly uplifting and refreshing.[3] It is elevating in a diffuser, while the addition of Lime oil in massage blends is said to evoke an ambiance of serenity. Lime oil is also used in skincare preparations for oily or congested skin, hands and feet, leg lotions, and chest rubs. As a bright top note in natural perfumery, it can help bring balance to overly-sweet perfumes.
