Lime essential oil is often used in aromatherapy blends due to its stimulating and refreshing scent, but that’s not all it is good for! Lime essential oil is an astringent, antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial and a disinfectant. Due to all of these properties, this versatile essential oil can be used to cure infections, reduce fever, disinfect food and surfaces, and prevent signs of aging. Some of the well known benefits of Lime essential oil is its ability to...
- Aids in Fighting Infections
Lime essential oil has natural antiseptic properties, which makes it a great tool in helping your body to beat common infections. For infections of the sinus and respiratory system, placing a few drops in a nebulizing diffuser and breathing in the essential oil enhanced air can help you to get to feeling better faster.
2. Helps to Alleviate Toothache Pain
Toothache pain caused by an influx of bacterial growth within a decaying tooth can be extraordinary. The astringent properties of lime essential oil can help to take the pain out of a toothache until you can make it to your dentist.
3. Reducing Dark Spots
Lime essential oil is packed full of antioxidants, which provide a huge help in clearing dark spots on the skin. Age spots, past acne marks, and scarring can be lightened with the power of lime. Not only for dark spots, lime has been shown to be effective against wrinkles and in brightening the skin’s overall tone as well. NOTE: Simplee Natural Lime essential oil has been extracted through cold compression so it can be phototoxic, so it’s important to exercise caution when using it topically. When applied directly to the skin and then exposed to the sun, phototoxic essential oils can cause swelling, darkening of the skin or extreme sunburn. To reduce this risk, safely dilute the oil before applying to the skin and avoid direct sunlight for at least 12 hours.
It’s recommended that you use 4 drops of lime essential oil in an ounce of carrier oil.
4. Fights Acne
A couple drops of lime essential oil added to your facial cleanser can turn any face wash into an acne fighting one. If you’re suffering from acne breakouts, the astringent and antibacterial properties of lime essential oil can help to stop blemishes once and for all.
5. Fever Reducer
A fever tells us that our bodies are fighting off some sort of infection. When fighting a fever, you can give your body a boost by diffusing lime essential oil and allowing the antibacterial and antiviral properties of lime to help your body’s immune system.
6. Restores Energy
Lime is also well known for helping to restore energy within the body. When diffused in the morning, or added to your shampoo, conditioner, or body wash, the fresh scent of lime can help you to clear the brain fog associated with a restless night of sleep or an early morning.
Lime essential oil acts as an effective disinfectant. When added to white vinegar, it can be used to clean just about any surface of your home safely. Rather than worrying about the multitude of chemicals in traditional cleansers, you can disinfect your home in a safe and simple way. For a great scent, mixing lime essential oil with lemon essential oil before adding to vinegar leaves you with a truly refreshed and clean feeling.
8. Prevents Viral Infections
The same antiseptic properties that help you to get over infections also help to prevent them in the first place. Diffusing a few drops of lime essential oil in your home during cold and flu season can help to keep your family healthy.
10. Air Purifying
Lime essential oil is also excellent at purifying the air of your home. We spend around 90% of our time indoors, and much of this is spent inside of our own homes. Placing a few drops of lime essential oil into a nebulizing diffuser can help to cleanse the air of fungal spores, bacteria, and allergens.
11. Easy to Blend
Lime essential oil is very simple to blend into different oil combinations. For instance, lime goes particularly well with clary sage essential oil, lavender essential oil, or ylang-ylang oil, and this benefit can be taken advantage of to experience the benefits of several different oils at once, or to create your own diffused fragrances.Disclaimer: The information contained on this site is intended for educational purposes only and is not a substitute for advice, diagnosis or treatment by a licensed physician.
