Perhaps you've used lime essential oil and love it. But Makrut lime (Citrus hystrix) is a little different, a little special. To me it't a little bit sweet treat lime, a little bit pack a punch, fight the germs tea tree kind of oil.
But it adds up to one lovely citrus smelling, germ fighting, uplifting kind of essential oil plus a bit more.
The chemistry tells it all. Makrut lime is rich in alpha-pinene, limonene, and terpinen-4-ol.
Alpha-pinene offers analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-spasmodic properties. Think relaxation and relief. Limonene in addition to analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, offers white blood cell activation and increase in skin penetration, and it's a great adversary to support immune health.
Terpinene-4-ol which is also found in tea tree, is also a great anti-inflammatory, activates the immune system, and also fights germs.
To me Makrut lime smells sweet with a touch of medicinal. But many of my clients love it. Below is a great way to enjoy the sweetness and germ fighting power of Makrut lime.
