Lime is similar to Lemon but has a stronger aroma. Lime oil is a restorative tonic, helping to cleanse and revitalise your body and mind, activating but not overstimulating.
Nature/Essence –Activating & Revitalising
SKIN ICON 72pxFOR 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)
 
BODY ICON 72pxFOR 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.
