Latin name: Citrus aurantifolia  
Source country: Most subtropical countries  
Appearance: Clear to pale yellow thin liquid.  
Aroma: Sharp, acerbic, mouth watering, pleasant.  
Derivation: Lime oil is derived from the fruit. The lime rind is cold pressed to yield a  
crude oil. For use in aromatherapy this oil is further distilled to remove the harmful  
chemicals which can have a phototoxic effect on the skin. If not removed the oil will  
bleach the skin.  
Chemicals: The main constituents are citral, limonene, linalol, linalyl acetate. There  
also other terpenoids such as pinenes, myrcene, terpineole, cineole, and small amounts of  
geranyl acetate and neral acetate.  
Uses: Lime oil is mainly used in the flavouring industry to spice up soft drinks. It is high  
in vitamin C and was used by British sailors to ward off scurvy - hence the name  
“Limeys”. It is used as a tonic and restorative oil, it is good for oily skins since it is an  
astringent, and can be used in skin tonics.It can relieve a tired mind and give an uplift in  
mood. It has been associated with relieving asthma and helping open the airways. In this  
context use in an aromatherapy burner and inhale the vapours.  
Note: As with all pure essential oils, dilute appropriately with a suitable carrier oil  
before using on the skin. Do not take essential oils internally. Do not use undistilled lime  
oil on the skin.
