This could be my favorite essential oil now. It smells bright and fresh but isn't biting. Blends great with spearmint and coconut! Lime isn't inexpensive but NDA delivers on quality and cost. As always, thank you!

Lime EO is my absolute favorite of all EOs , and this variety is amazingly. I've tried almost every variety and a lot of brands. I prefer cold pressed lime (IMO the scent is more authentic) and tends to be more tart. I love that. I live in Florida and have a couple different lime trees, this one smells the closest actually better then fresh lime zest. Thanks NDA

Before my order arrived today, I was just sniffing this lime essential oil I received from another supplier and comparing that with a fresh lime I just sliced and the EO just doesn't smell like fresh lime, it smells like lime, but just it's too sweet...Then my order from NDA arrives and I of course have to do a sniff test, Wow! This smells just like fresh lime rind, tart & bitter with a slight sweetness. I love it!

Absolutely amazing. I used this essential oil paired with Lime Lab Color for my daughter's soap and she loved it. Everyone was able to admire the smell, as it filled the entire room (in a very non invasive, pleasant way).

This lime is very sweet and almost candy scented. Exactly how i think it should be, use it in a blend with sweet basil and lavender. It works wonderfully; I am interested in trying the key lime variety.

Oh gosh, I love lime oil!!! My customers think it smells like delicious lime candy when used as the star in my blend, or when it is mixed with bay rum. Lime oil has this invigorating scent that makes you feel refreshed and ready to start your day. Definitely a staple.

Mouth-watering! A fresh, tart lime in a bottle. Perfect, strong scent for toners, scrubs and antibacterial soaps. Mixed with a spicy or woody scent would make this an awesome deodorizing body spritzer.

I love this one! It's VERY strong, though, and when I mixed 1 drop in with a combination of about 30 drops of other EOs, this one overpowered the rest BY FAR! So I'd recommend diluting it if you don't want your product to smell too limey. The scent is very different from lemon or orange or grapefruit. I find it much stronger, sharper, and more masculine.

Definitely a must have in every house. It is an excellent antiseptic oil and therefore I use it in my all shower gels, shampoos and every liquid cleaning products. Also it has a very pleasant citrus smell when used in aromatherapy and it blends well with almost every EO. It is well known to clarify and renew your spirit (I like lime better than lemon). I almost use it every day. Highly recommended. Thank you ND for having this precious oil.

I was expecting "citrus" and got more of a "candy lime" scent. It's not a bad one, but it's certainly not what I was expecting. The kids love it because it smells just like green lime hard candy. Nice, but not "grown up".

I use this oil in many of my blends as it has all the properties of Lemon Oil but is more suitable for use with children. This oil is probably phototoxic. Use for abscesses, acne, asthma, boils, bronchitis, colds, cuts, fever, infections, insect bites, mouth ulcers, nosebleeds, spots, throat infections, warts. Just what I expected, lovely scent and excellent price!
