Description: One breath of Key Lime's zesty, fresh, and deliciously sweet aroma will transport you to a beach where palm trees sway while you sip on a tropical island drink! Rich and tart, it's likened to a sweet lime popsicle. This oil is steam distilled, therefore it is NOT phototoxic. It is a top note with a medium aroma.
Benefits & Uses:
- The refreshing aroma of Key Lime is uplifting and invigorating, making it a beautiful choice for one of our aromatherapy inhalers when an afternoon pick-me-up at work or school is needed.
- With its sparkly and sunny disposition, Key Lime is an ally to those who feel situational anxiety, depression, sadness, or general unhappiness.
- Clears the mind and boosts mental energy.
- Although considered an invigorating oil, it is also calming to the nervous system and can be called upon during difficult times to evoke a sense of harmony.
- With a high limonene content, it makes a great addition to DIY cleaners and disinfecting sprays. Diffuse it in your home to combat unwanted germs, boost the immune system, and encourage vitality during cold and flu season.
