Citrus aurantifolia - Victoria
Lime essential oil is refreshing, tart and uplifting. It has motivating & energizing qualities. Like the sunshine it can provide a boost to help relieve stress, anxiety and depression.
Physically, it has an affinity with the digestive system (cramps, spasms & gas) and the skin. It may help with acne and oily skin.
It blends well with cedarwood, other citrus oils, clary sage, lavender, patchouli & vetiver.
It is cold expressed from the peel.
It will keep for around 1-2 years if stored with lid tightly closed in a cool, dark area.
*Lime should not be applied to the skin before exposure to sunlight as it is photosensitive.
