4 Surprising Benefits of Lime Essential Oil

lime essential oil bottlesIt’s hard to mistake the invigorating and pleasant citrus scent of Lime Essential Oil. The aroma brings to mind refreshing summer cocktails and delicious fresh food.

But limes are more than just a garnish for your favorite drinks. They have been used therapeutically for centuries by many cultures and could offer benefits that can improve your daily life. Whether it’s used aromatically, topically or internally, the lime fruit has endless applications for self-care, cleaning, cooking and much more.

Lime Essential Oil comes from the lime peel, not the distinctively tart juice. Just like the fruit that it’s extracted from, Lime Essential Oils provide an energizing and uplifting aroma, along with an array of amazingly useful everyday benefits.

Give a few of these usage ideas a try around the home and for your health. You’ll quickly find lime oil becoming a main staple in your essential oil collection.

Use Lime Essential Oil as a Natural Cleaner

Some people use Lime Essential Oil as a natural cleanser. Like other citrus fruit, it has powerful purifying properties for the inside and out. When used around the home, it can help protect us from seasonal threats. When diluted properly and used in a wash or a rinse, it can help cleanse damaged skin and lessen the effects of many skin aggravations.

Lime Essential Oil is present in many natural cleaning products, and can also cut through tough grease and be an effective multi-purpose cleaner in the kitchen.

Lime Essential Oil Can Help Protect You from Buzzing Annoyances?

There are many natural methods for keeping bugs away from our skin, food, clothes and loved ones. Lime Essential Oil works effectively to help keep outdoor annoyances out of your life, because many buzzing annoyances react negatively to citrus scents and stay away from places where they smell these scents.
