Lime has a fresh, zesty and sharp, yet slightly sweet scent. It has astringent an antibacterial properties that make it a useful therapeutic treatment for acne. Like grapefruit it is a lymphatic stimulant and may be used to ease fluid retention and cellulite in a massage oil blend. Lime is inherently uplifting and refreshing, ideal for those that are sluggish, apathetic or simply feeling a little dull. It is no wonder that citrus fruits are ripe in the middle of winter!

ESSENTIAL OIL SAFETY

Do not apply essential oils to your skin undiluted. Some essential oils, when diluted are suitable for use in skincare formulations. Please contact us for more information if you are using essential oils on your skin for safe dilution ratios. Generally 1-2% of essential oil diluted in a carrier oil such as jojoba oil or sweet almond oil is considered safe. Some essential oils can cause irritation even in dilution and are not suitable in skincare. 

We do not recommend ingesting essential oils. Essential oils are very potent plant extractions and can cause irritation and damage to your mucous membranes as well as other health risks such as poisoning. Ask our Herbalists about safe plant extracts for internal use. Store essential oils away from children at all times. Seek advice before using essential oils for children. If you have a skin condition, are pregnant, have epilepsy or asthma, or are in any doubt about any condition you may have please contact us or a suitable health practitioner for further guidance.
