Essential Oil Of The Month - Lime

Spring is nearly here and, to celebrate, our essential oil of the month is uplifting and cleansing LIME.

A powerful antioxidant, Lime supports healthy immune function as well as helping to reduce pain in the joints and muscles. But one of Lime’s best effects is on the mood. This refreshing and stimulating oil promotes emotional balance and wellbeing and is even said to increase a person’s playfulness and appetite for life! If you feel weighed down by stagnant energies like fatigue and apathy then Lime can help you to regain your joie de vivre and increase your energy. Crippling emotions like grief and despair can be soothed as lime is especially helpful for those experiencing depression. It can also be useful in restoring appetite as well as helping in cases of food poisoning.

Use lime essential oil in a burner to cleanse the air around you and lift your mood.

And, as if all that wasn’t enough, you can also put lime on a cotton pad to help remove grease spots and sticker residue.
