summery lime

Bought this after smelling a whole bowl filled of limes. not disapointed as some lime oils I do not like - they get up my nose - this is fresh and some what sweet. Use it in diffusers and candles - mix with lavender and lemongrass.

Smells amazing!

Lovely smelling, easy to mix in. I used it for bath bombs so I cannot comment on soap trace yet, but it was easy to mix into the bath bomb mix and they still smell nice after a few weeks dry, and release lots of scent as they fizz.
