Man Found Standing Writes:
Lime, Organic: Mexico (Citrus x aurantifolia)
The Lime tree is native to Asia and became very popular in the 1800’s,due to the high content of vitamin C. English sailors took Limes on long journeys toprevent scurvy and ate them so much; they were given the nickname of “Limeys.”
The essential oil is quite similar to Lemon, with both having the same predominant chemical of Limonene and both being cold pressed from the rind. Generally Lemon and Lime are considered interchangeable in their therapeutic results however Lime oil is more phototoxic than Lemon so it is not recommended to be used on skin exposed to the sunlight.
