Lime essential oil

Indigenous to Southeast Asia, the lime tree eventually spread to Egypt and Africa, with the Moors introducing it to Spain in the 1200s. In later years it was widely cultivated in Europe, eventually reaching the Americas. Today the largest cultivator of lime is Asia, followed by Mexico and other countries with warm climates, such as Italy and the West Indies.

While lime essential oil is often used for culinary purposes, it also has many therapeutic uses as it is antibacterial, antiviral and full of nutrients and antioxidants.

Lime oil can be extracted either by the cold compression of its peel or by steam distillation.
