Lime Essential Oil
Lime Essential Oil is extracted from the cold-pressed peels of the lime fruit. It is known for its refreshing citrus scent and is commonly used in aromatherapy, perfumery, and home cleaning products. Lime Essential Oil contains high levels of Vitamin C, which is known for its anti-aging properties. Vitamin C helps to boost collagen production, which can help to keep skin firm, plump, and elastic. It also contains citric acid, which has astringent properties that can help to tighten pores, regulate excess oil production, and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Lime Essential Oil is also known to have natural bleaching properties, which can help to lighten dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and age spots. However, it's important to use essential oils in a dilute form, as they are very concentrated and may cause irritation if used undiluted. It's also important to do a patch test before applying essential oils to a larger area.
