Uplifting, protecting, and refreshing
Astringent, antiseptic, limes have all the same benefits on the body as lemons.
We use lime oil to give our shower, hair and skincare products an uplifting and zesty fragrance that also helps to cleanse and tone as it boosts circulation. As with all citrus fruit, this fragrant oil is the first scent you pick out in a blend as it is a top note and evaporates first on your skin.
As limes are astringent, they add shine to the hair as their acidity causes the hair follicles to lie flat, meaning they reflect more light. They also stimulate the blood flow and scrub away dead skin cells, helping to get the skin glowing while boosting the mood with its sharp, fresh scent. Large amounts of vitamin C gives the essential oil antibiotic and antioxidant properties which helps to protect the skin from pollutants and the sun.
