Lime Essential Oil
Plant and Oil Description
Pass that Key lime pie! Citrus Aurantifolia, also known as key lime, is picked when it is green but turns yellow when ripe. While it hails from Southeast Asia, the fruit was naturalized in the Florida Keys, which is how key lime got its name. Members of the British navy in the 19th century were known as “Limeys”, because of their use of limes to prevent scurvy while at sea. Lime essential oil is extracted from the peel of the fruit, and is often used in perfumes, cleaning products, and aromatherapy.
What’s it Good For?
