You may be more familiar with Lime’s culinary uses as a citrusy delight. As an essential oil, it offers a wave of therapeutic recipes.

Native to India, Lime trees produce white flowers and citrus fruit and was first carried to the Mediterranean in the 19th Century. Today, Limes are grown throughout the West Indies, Central America and Italy. The entire peel is put through a steam distillation method to extract the essential oil. Try blending it with Bergamot or a bright floral and diffuse it a space needing an uplift.
