A few top uses for Lime:

Emotional support

Shift from discouraged to courageous, from resigned to emotionally honest, apathetic to revitalised with your Lime Essential Oil!

Earlier in this blog I spoke about getting into alignment (alimement), this oil can support you to balance the mind and heart, and hold for you to move into a feeling of being safe at home in your heart. Lime can cleanse the heart area of negative emotional residue and make space for positive feelings such as joy and gratitude. 

Dilute a few drops of Lime Essential Oil into a carrier oil such as Fractionated Coconut Oil and rub over your heart then cup your hands together over your nose and breathe deeply.
