FOR THE SKIN
Lime oil has astringent, antiseptic and toning effects for oily, congested or acne-prone skin. It is also used for boils, fungal conditions, cold sores and warts, and in formulations for greasy hair and deodorants. (Avoid sun exposure after applying to skin)
FOR THE BODY
Lime oil helps stimulate digestion, and aids natural detoxification by encouraging lymphatic circulation. It is popular in toning body blends for cellulite and fluid retention. Lime oil also has antimicrobial and immune support properties, great to diffuse or as an inhalation for coughs and colds.
FOR THE MIND
Lime has a refreshing and uplifting effect on a dull or fatigued mind and spirit. Helpful to gently activate when feeling fearful or apathetic, unable to get into the day ahead or life in general.
