Our newest lime oil is expressed and not distilled. The expressed variety is sweeter and more fun than the distilled variety. A fresh zip, just like a lime squeeze in a summer drink.
If you are thinking about which lime to try you should seriously consider the expressed. While it is a bit more expensive, the fresh notes are really worth it. Better yet, do a smell test by trying them both side to side.
Use at a rate of 0.5 to 1.5%. For a batch of lip balm that makes 50 tubes (.15 ounces each) or 25 jars (.25 ounces each) use from 1 to 4 grams. This converts to approximately 1 to 4.5 milliliters if you would rather use a pipette.
For room sprays, try up to 5%. For aromatherapy diffusers, use according to the manufacturer's directions for the diffuser you have.
This scent is bright and cheerful. I am sure any citrus lover will really enjoy this oil.
