Lime essential oil has a fresh crisp citrus scent that has been used for many years because of its uplifting and revitalizing properties. It can also act as an astringent on skin where it is often used to help clear oily skin. Do not use directly on skin, I like to add a few drops to a spray container of witch hazel and distilled water and then use this as an astringent. Often I will mix Lemon and Lime essential oils together in a spray bottle of distilled water, I use this as a quick spray cleaner around the house, both lemon and lime carry antiseptic qualities.
Note: Lime essential oil is considered photo-toxic and exposure to sunlight should be avoided.
Avoid use during pregnancy.
For external use only, not to be taken internally.
