Lime is great for cleaning with essential oils. It is bright and uplifting and one of the strongest citrus essential oils aromatically.
Like most citrus essential oils, Lime essential oil is high in limonene which is antibacterial, antiviral and immune supporting. Great to do an old fashioned steam with during cold and flu season.

Lime Essential Oil is phototoxic. Do not use it on the skin for at least 12 hours before going in the sun or a tanning bed. I do not recommend using it undiluted on the skin as it can be skin irritating.
Animals are sensitive to essential oils, especially cats and smaller furry friends. Never put essential oils on cats or other small pets fur. When using essential oils with dogs or other animals consult a holistic vet for advice on how to use them safely.
