Background

Lime essential oil is of the staples of any essential oil collection! The aroma is invigorating, fresh and citrusy. The oil itself is cold pressed from the peel of the lime fruit. Plus these two varieties feature many of the same therapeutic benefits of the original Lime while enjoying more unique aromatic profiles.

Key Lime

Key Limes are a smaller and seedier variety of Lime with their own fresh, juicy scent. In order to preserve the physical, chemical and aromatic characteristics in this fresh essential oil, Key Limes are processed immediately after being picked. This fresh, bright citrus scent is just one reason you need this essential oil in your collection!

Persian Lime

Persian Limes, a slightly sweeter fruit than other limes, still have the same amazing uplifting and invigorating properties. With a bigger and greener fruit, Persian Lime, Citrus x latifolia, essential oil also has a slightly different color and sweeter scent than Key Lime. Even better, Both Key Lime and Persian come in 30 mL!

Benefits

June Oil of the Month: Key Lime & Persian Lime

One of the favorite uses of any Lime essential oil is in cleaning products. Key Lime especially has astringent properties, making it a good choice for helping keep clear and healthy skin. Just make sure to dilute to a maximum of 0.7% in a carrier when applying topically. It also can help support your immune system! This is one energizing, stimulating smell you’ll want to breathe in all day long.

Like Key Lime, Persian Lime is also amazing at helping support a healthy immune system. When added to your cleaning routine, it will keep your house smelling bright and fresh. If you’re looking for a boost of energy or added mental focus, try using Persian Lime in your diffuser or personal inhaler.

Blending

  1. I received two Key limes and not a Persian lime- I called – was told I this would be corrected. Ordered two orders 3 days later- received my orders and still no Persian lime. ;Did you run out?

  2. Great information, looking forward to ordering in the future to try them in my cleaning recipes.
    Thanks!

  3. These smell wonderful! It would be fantastic if the info sheets for the OOTM could be included in the blog post!

  4. I was so excited to get two Lime oils! I love them both. I diffuse them in my truck and add other citrus to diffuse at home as well.

  5. I love the limes…..I use the Key Lime as my car air freshener…..its a wonderful pick me up after a long day of work!

  6. I have never really cared for the smell of limes until I got PT lime essential oil. I love it! So yesterday I had to order June’s OOTM. I am so excited!

  7. These are both so refreshing and “juicy!” I’ve been stuck on diffusing them since they arrived. Especially like the Persian lime with some rosemary and peppermint at my work desk in the morning! Do hope these become permanent offerings.

  8. I love both of these Lime oils! I was hoping the blog would have some recipes though, to help me find ways to use them.
