Lime Steam Distilled Essential Oil is a crisp, fresh, very sweet, scented oil steam distilled from the peel of Citrus aurantifolia. The difference in fragrance, from the pressed oil, is significant. Lime Steam distilled Essential oil is very sweet and more candy like, while the pressed oil is tart, with a hint of sweetness. We like the steam distilled oil due to it's lack of photo sensitizing compounds, which make it suitable for all around use in, blends and, products.
Like most of the citrus oils Lime Steam Distilled Essential Oil is a great choice for oily and congested skin conditions where it will assist in drying the excess oil without over drying and causing the skin to create more oil in an attempt to re-balance the skin. It will also have an astringent effect on the skin making it suitable for hair care applications.
Lime Steam Distilled Essential Oil is a great choice for those products that will be used throughout the day where the pressed oil might be inappropriate.
Lime Steam Distilled Essential Oil
is also a great choice for all of your candy like fragrances, especially when you're having trouble getting the sweetness of candy.

- the next time that you're trying to improve the overall sweetness of a blend, without contributing a lot of identifiable fragrance, try adding a trace of Lime Steam Distilled Essential Oil. Like Peppermint Re-Distilled Essential Oil, it adds a deep layer of sweetness, at very low usage, without contributing an identiable note of Lime.
