LIME is an essential oil cold-pressed from the peel of fresh limes, refreshing and energising in both taste and aroma. Lime powerfully uplifts and helps balance mood, and energises the body. Similarly to lemon, lime is high in limonene, making it stimulating to the senses and cleansing both internally and in the air. Moreover, it can support the body’s immunity from day to day.
The beauty of lime is that it has a multitude of uses, frequently used in body and facial cleansers for its purifying properties and uplifting scent. It also makes an effective disinfectant and antiviral, great for cleansing surfaces and preventing the spread of airborne pathogens that spread colds, flus, and other nasties. In your cleaning, grease spots and sticker residue come away easily with a few drops rubbed using a cotton pad.
Lime essential oil is known for its emotional benefit as ‘the oil of zest for life’. It powerfully cleanses repressed emotions, supporting individuals to be emotionally honest, engaged, revitalised, determined, courageous, and grateful for life. Using lime topically and/or aromatically can help shift feelings of apathy, resignation, discouragement and grief.
Personally, I love using lime in my kitchen, whether as a simple dressing with olive oil in salads, or in curries, baking, or a crowd-pleasing guacamole (RECIPE TO COME!). Lime pairs beautifully with other citruses such as tangerine, bergamot and wild orange, or with cilantro, coriander, black or pink pepper oils for a burst of flavour. Oils work most powerfully when added towards the end of your cooking process, keeping their therapeutic benefit and really enhancing flavour. doTERRA’s ‘Gourmet Cooking’ Wellness Box is a great option if you are looking to add a few oils for cooking to your collection.
