Description

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.

TUMMY BLEND: Add to a 2 ounce squeeze bottle: 6 drops of Lime, 2 drops of Ginger, 8 drops of Peppermint, 8 drops of Sweet Orange, then fill with Sweet Almond oil. Shake to mix well. Apply a teaspoon over the abdomen and massage. (2% dilution)

INHALER: Add to a personal inhaler and inhale as needed: 5 drops of Lime, 5 drops of Tea Tree and 5 drops of Lemon Eucalyptus. Or add Lime to your Thera Lux Diffuser and diffuse for 30-60 minutes.

GARGLE: Add to a 4 ounce squeeze bottle: ½ cup of warm Chamomile tea, 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 drop of Lime and 1 drop Tea Tree. Shake well to dissolve the honey and essential oils into the tea. Use as a gargle 2-3 times daily or as often as needed to provide relief; shake the bottle well each time before use. Utilize the whole bottle daily and make a fresh batch as needed.

UPLIFT: Add to a personal inhaler and inhale as needed: 5 drops of Lime, 5 drops of Basil and 5 drops of Lemon. Or add 5-6 drops of Lime to your Car Diffuser diffuser and diffuse for a more uplifting drive.

MENTAL FATIGUE: Add to a personal inhaler and inhale as needed: 5 drops of Lime, 5 drops of Rosemary and 5 drops of Peppermint. Or add 5-6 drops of Lime to your Scent Ball Diffuser and diffuse for 30-60 minutes.

INHALATION: Add the following to a 5 ml amber glass bottle: 25 drops of Lime, 40 drops of Eucalyptus and 35 drops of Tea Tree, then shake to mix well. Fill a bowl with steamy water; add to the bowl 2 drops of the essential oil mixture, covering your head and bowl with a towel to keep the steam in. Inhale through your nose, with eyes closed. Breathe in the vapors for several minutes, or as desired.

SUGAR SCRUB: To exfoliate the skin and smooth the appearance, mix together: 12 drops of Lime, 10 drops of Cypress, 12 drops of Tangerine and 14 drops of Grapefruit with 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 1/4 cup of Jojoba and 1/4 cup of Sesame oils. Stir to mix well. Best if used in the shower, on wet skin. Gently massage 1 tablespoon, or as much as needed, into problem areas. Rinsing away the sugar will leave the oils behind to work therapeutically, so you may want to use as a last step (using soap after will remove all traces of oil). (2% dilution)
