Essential Oil Notebook: Lime


One of the key benefits of Lime Essential Oil is that it positively affects mood with stimulating and refreshing properties. I don't even have to open the bottle and this works for me. I feel good just hearing the word "lime". Not sure why - maybe the happy green color, the burst of flavor it adds to any dish, or perhaps it's that lime reminds me of a warm tropical beach. But if you don't have the same reaction to just hearing the word, no worries. Remove the cap from a bottle of Lime Essential Oil, take one whiff, and enjoy!
