Lime (distilled) Organic (Oshadhi) * 5ml

LimeLime (distilled) Organic Essential Oil


The vibrant, citrus scent of lime is a welcome top note for men's aftershaves and colognes. The oil can be diffused in a room during the flu season when there are infections around. It is also good for digestion and cellulite. Try it in a diffuser or mister to freshen a sickroom, remove cooking odours, or create a festive mood. It combines especially well with other citrus oils. Relaxing yet refreshing and uplifting.

This is a pure therapeutic-quality certified organic aromatherapy essential oil from India, and is obtained from the peel.

Benefits of Lime Essential Oil


Refreshing and Uplifting. Similar to Lemon oil in its Action.

Lime oil has been extensively used in the food and beverage industry, as well as in making fragrances. This versatile citrus oil is also added to household cleaners, detergents, soaps and other beauty products. You can also get body-wide benefits by using lime oil in aromatherapy, as it is stimulating and refreshing. Just like lemon oil, lime oil can be used for its cleansing properties. Its rich vitamin C content also makes it an ideal immune system booster, helping protect you from colds and flu.

  • You can relieve stress, exhaustion and anxiety or calm your mind - by diffusing a few drops using a vaporizer. This also helps boost your immune system, especially after an illness. You can add it to your bathwater as well. * Refer to safe usage guide.
  • For colds, coughs, sinusitis, sore throat and chest congestion - add a few drops to a bowl of steaming water and inhale it. You can also mix a few drops with a carrier oil, then rub it on your neck and chest.
  • If you have rheumatism and arthritis - put two to three drops in an ounce of carrier oil, then massage on the affected areas regularly. This method also works for cellulite and varicose veins.
  • Treat bleeding cuts and wounds - by putting two drops in a cold compress and pressing it on the affected areas.
  • For acne and other skin problems - mix two drops of lime oil with 15 drops of jojoba oil and apply onto your skin. This helps wash out impurities while promoting the growth of new skin cells.
  • Avoid dandruff and bring life to dull, frizzy or oily hair - by mixing a few drops of lime oil in your favorite shampoo. Lime can help remove oil quickly while moisturizing your scalp from within.

Don't just leave lime oil in your medicine cabinet, though. Around the home, lime oil can help:

  • Remove grease spots and sticker residue - Put lime oil on a cotton pad and use it to wipe surfaces clean. It also helps remove gum and can be used to clean a dry erase board.
  • Prevent fruits from turning brown - Add one to two drops to your fruits.
  • Repel insects, such as mosquitoes and ants - Simply diffuse it in your home.
  • Add flavor to your citrus-infused dishes - Add a few drops for a deeper, tangy flavor.

Blending

Essential OilImportant Information


  • * Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution


  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution


  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions


  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils however is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
