Citrus aurantifolia

Origin: Sri Lanka
Family: Rutaceae
Part used: Rind

Lime, or Key Lime, is a popular, small green fruit from the Citrus family, originating from tropical Southeast Asia and South Asia. With greater volumes of sugar and acid than lemons, limes have become globally popular for their use in cuisine, perfume and aromatherapy. The cold-pressed rind extraction is also broadly known for its restorative, antiviral and antiseptic properties.
Fragrance notes
Lighter and sweeter than lemon but also more intense, bright and tart.

Blending notes
Blends well with: Lemon, Basil, Patchouli and Jasmine.
The lime was first introduced to Europe by the Moors, prior to its introduction to the Americas. Ship crews depended on limes to prevent scurvy when they were at sea for long periods without fruit and vegetables. Over time the therapeutic properties of lime oil were found to be antiseptic, antiviral, restorative and tonic. It has been used to help cool fevers and support the immune system. Lime is also believed to stimulate and refresh a tired mind.
