I love my lemon water. In fact, I try to consume a BIG bottle of it daily, but once in a while I’m ready for something different.
Just like lemon, lime essential oil is super affordable, a delicious addition to water and an all around great oil to have on hand.
For drinking, just add a few drops (and by a few, I mean no more than 2 – it is STRONG stuff) to a glass bottle or drinking glass and fill the glass with water. Then enjoy!
What are some of the other uses? I was really surprised to see all the benefits*:
- supports digestion as a digestive aid (historically lime has been used like this – who knew?)
- antioxidant support
- perhaps as a weight loss aid – anecdotal finding only
- insect deterrent – I may have to add this to my homemade bug lotion!
Young Living’s Lime essential oil contains 100% lime oil – so nothing has been added or cut into it. I am comfortable ingesting the Young Living brand, but do your research if you are considering a different brand.
