Key Lime Historical Uses
Key Lime Essential Oil is quite similar to “regular” Lime (same botanical name) but is a bit smaller fruit and is often not quite as green at regular limes. Lime fruit has often been used in place of lemon fruit in many traditional practices and even in some cooking applications and it shares many qualities with lemon fruit, although the aroma is very different. Both lime and lemon fruit have been used at times in the past for infections, poor appetite, sore throats and colds.Essential Oil Safety Considerations
