Description: Our Key Lime essential oil is is awesome. It is first cold press, then steam distilled so that it will not oxidize as quickly as a Lime oil that has only been cold pressed. Key Lime goes well solo, but it is a wonderful addition to an endless number of essential blends, but also great to add to natural house cleaning products for its antimicrobial properties and grease-cutting capabilities.
IMPORTANT: FOR SAFETY PURPOSES, THIS PRODUCT IS FOR AROMATHERAPY-USE ONLY. Key Lime is mildly phototoxic and should be highly diluted if it is to come in contact with the skin. As Key Lime ages, it can become more concentrated, increasing its phototoxicity.
