Lime Essential Oil has a sweet and tart aroma that blends well with many other oils. The aroma is especially concentrated, and a little goes a long way. It is made from the rind of the lime and just one drop is equal to dozen of limes so it may be supportive of good health.
Why I make my own beauty products: I made this refreshing lime body butter which makes me so happy every time I use it. It is important to remember that anytime we put anything on our skin goes right into our blood stream and our livers have to filter conventional beauty products. Overuse of common beauty products can contribute to health problems over time.
About lime essential oil: Lime essential oil has an invigorating and stimulating effect. Limes are believed to be native of eastern Malaysia. The pleasant citrus aroma of lime can be a great addition to a pleasant morning.
Homemade Lotion Recipe with Lime Young Living Essential Oil
1 cup coconut oil or palm shortening (the brand I recommend here)
10-20 drops lime essential oil (the only essential oil I recommend here)
Place all the ingredients in a large stainless steel bowl and whip with an electric beater (I used my beater attachment on my Cuisinart hand mixer). A blender is not recommended becasue it will not aerate the oil well enough. Beat the oil for 3-5 minutes until it is fluffy and light. Place the oil in a glass jar and keep on a cool dark place.
