More details

It is a thorny bush, probably originating from India and Malaysia. The lime was brought to France and Italy in the thirteenth century by the Crusaders. A bush of 3-5 m. high, perennial. It has small white flowers tinged with red, and they are very fragrant. The tree blooms continuously, producing fruit throughout the year. The lime is usually between 3-6 cm in diameter. Its fine and adherent crust covers a juicy pulp, very acid and very aromatic. The flesh and rind are green.

Benefits for health

  • Lemon and lime essential oils are very useful for your skin. They have similar therapeutic properties. However, lime is gentler in action and often chosen over lemon for this reason. Lime is notably known to irritate less the skin, while lemon can actually worsen the skin condition at first in certain cases.
  • Lime essential oil can help you treat spots or acne. Diluted in a carrier oil, it makes an excellent, anti-bacterial astringent.
  • Lime is also toning to skin and anti-aging. Yet, please note that there are other essential oils that have anti-aging properties and that are safer to use on skin. For example: lavender and tea tree essential oils.
  • Lime can be helpful with fever, infections, sore throat, colds, etc. It is also helpful in cases of rheumatism.

Safety / contraindications

  • Do not use lime essential oil if you plan to expose yourself to strong sunlight during the next 24 hours (or use in low dilutions below 2%). Indeed, the oil can cause skin reaction in sunlight.
