dōTERRA Lime Essential Oil
I don't know about you all, but I am a HUGE fan of citrus fruits, citrus smells, and especially all of the dōTERRA citrus essential oils. One of my top favorite citrus oils has got to be dōTERRA Lime essential oil. I have found that I love a drop of Lime oil in my water, and I really love a few drops of Lime oil added to my DIY room freshener spray, and my all purpose cleaner too. Lime is such a versatile oil, so its easy to see why it can be a favorite to many!
With Lime being known for its cleansing benefits when taken internally, and its amazing citrus flavor and aroma, its no surprise that people love adding a drop or two into their water, or even into a salsa or guacamole dip. Lime is often added to foods to enhance flavor, and also added to beverages for that extra fresh, citrus flavor. That Lime flavor is loved by all, and the tart, sweet, citrus aroma is loved by many too. This makes Lime a great oil to be used during aromatherapy for positive affects on the mood, and promoting emotional balance and well being. Lime is well known for its ability to uplift, balance and energize.
With its cleansing and purifying benefits, Lime is often also used aromatically for purifying and cleansing the air, through diffusion or a DIY room freshener spray, or used in an all purpose cleaner for its effective ability in being a natural surface cleanser. Because of this natural cleansing benefit, many people like to add 1 drop of Lime to facial cleanser or even shampoo, to assist with beautifying the skin.
Here is a great recipe for a Do-It-Yourself Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub. Treat your skin today, and help cleanse and purify at the same time.
