The Acient Wisdom Essential oils are studiously selected, tested for purity and subjected to rigorous quality control standards. We believe these essential oils offer the best quality and value on the market.
Lime Essential Oil is obtained from Citrus aurantifolia, also known as Mexican or West Indian lime, as well as sour lime. The oil is extracted from the peel of the unripe skin by cold expression or from the peel and/or the whole ripe fruit by steam distillation. Lime oil has a sharp, citrus smell that immediately perks up one's mood on smelling it. It is pale yellow to light olive in colour.
Lime oil, when used in wax warmer, stimulates a tired mind and helps ease anxiety, apathy and depression. It is useful to reduce fevers associated with colds, sore throats and flu. It increases immunity while easing cough, bronchitis, sinusitis and asthma. It is said to be helpful for arthritis, rheumatism and poor circulation, as well as for obesity and cellulite. This oil is good for the skin; it reduces oiliness and acne, helps with herpes, insect bites and cuts. However, the oil that is obtained by cold expression (as opposed to steam distillation) can cause photosensitivity and irritate the skin.
Read the instructions for use carefully and follow them carefully! The oils are intended for external use and are not intended for consumption. Do not use undiluted! May cause skin irritation in sensitive people. Do not use during pregnancy and in young children!
