Words by Anny Schneider

This essential oil of lime with the acidulated perfume, recalls the joy and the joy of the summer.

It is interesting to use in cooking, always to dilute in a fat body at the end of cooking.

It is also used in perfumery or as an adjunct to cleaning products.

In application on the solar plexus (diluted in a vegetable oil) or in diffusion, it revives the vital forces and soothes nervous tensions.

⇒Like all essential oils of citrus, lime can irritate some sensitive skin because it is photosensitizing, so it is recommended to never expose to the sun after care.

Origin of this essential oil

This lime essential oil from Italy is obtained from the zest of fruits.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
