Citrus aurantifolia essential oil contains antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, astringent, restorative and tonic properties. Lime essential oil is an effective aid in the treatment of acne, oily skin, and insect bites. It tones muscles, tissues, and the skin, as well as providing benefits to the body’s various systems, including the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive, and excretory systems. This tonic effect helps retain youthfulness and prevent the manifestations of premature aging, such as hair loss, wrinkles, age spots, and muscle weakness.
The aroma is uplifting and refreshing. On account of its antibacterial, and antiviral abilities, lime essential oil is useful in the treatment of colds, fevers, and infections. And as an anti-arthritic substance, it can reduce pain in the muscles and joints.
A little food for thought when your adding lime to your cocktail this weekend (or cleansing with our PURIFY face wash ;)
