Lime – doTERRA Essential Oil

Tuesday Tip-off!

Cold-pressed from the peel of fresh limes, dōTERRA Lime essential oil is refreshing and energizing in both aroma and taste. Due to its high limonene content, Lime provides internal cleansing benefits and can be diffused to help purify the air.



Lime essential oil comes from the fruit of the common citrus tree.  It can be either steam processed or cold pressed to produce the essential oil.  The former produces a clear oil and in the heating process an important constituent (furocoumarin) is destroyed.  DoTerra uses oils that are cold pressed producing a Lime colored essential oil wherein the furocoumarins are preserved.  (Furocoumarins are organic chemical compound produced by plants as a defense mechanism against various types of predators ranging from insects to mammals., Wikipedia)

As with other citrus oils Lime is known for its cleansing properties as well as having an uplifting effect on the spirit.
