Lime Essential OilLime essential oil

Have you ever held a lime and just smellllllllllled? LOL!  I absolutely love it!  So fresh and crisp and uplifting!  You know how your hands smell like limes after you’ve held a really good one?  That’s the essential oil.

Pure lime essential oil, cold-expressed from the peel of the lime, is no different.  In fact, it’s even better. It’s so concentrated and powerful that one or two drops are more than enough to make your homemade guacamole ah-mazing.  Or your bathroom smell fresh and clean.

So Many Uses!

Flavoring food and beverages.  Cleaning and disinfecting.  Purifying the air.  Uplifting the mood.  Removing grease and sticky residue.  Killing bacteria.  Reducing fevers.

How will you use yours?
