Lime Essential Oil
LIME – Mexico
Talk about exotic – no one can pinpoint the lime's origins in the world. While it is widely believed to be a native of South Asia, it is primarily cultivated in tropical and subtropical climes, including Mexico and the West Indies. In herbal medicine traditions, lime is used to relieve various everyday maladies such as fever and sore throat. It has also been applied in treating insect bites, minor cuts, brittle nails, and varicose veins. According to research in Japan, studies have shown that the application of citrus fragrance into a patient's therapy can support improved mood and feelings of calm. Through extraction by cold press, this essential oil blend comes from the peel of the unripe fruit.
