It can also help reduce fluids when applied to swollen areas of the skin. Diffuse away if your day is feeling gray! (*See safety information below)

Lime oil is astringent, making it useful for oily skin types. Like other citrus oils, it is emotionally uplifting and is a natural airborne deodorizer when diffused. Also, research has shown it to be anti-infectious, anti-viral, and antibacterial. (*See safety information below)
Orange oil, when applied topically, reduces abdominal cramping associated with digestive issues - gas, bloating, nausea, vomiting, constipation. It's also emotionally uplifting when added to any diffuser blend. Orange stimulates circulation and encourages movement where applied. Because of it's high d-limonene content, it strengthens the immune system with long term exposure. Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) IS NOT PHOTOTOXIC like many other cold pressed citrus oils.
*CHEMISTRY: Bergamot (Citrus bergamia), Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi), Lemon (Citrus limon), and Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) contain a high percentage of d-limonene (Monoterpene) which has been researched to be analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-obesity, antioxidant, antitumoral, antiulcerogenic, immune-stimulant, activates white blood cells, and is a skin penetration enhancer.
*SAFETY: FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Phototoxic (may cause skin discoloration if exposed to UV rays, natural or artificial). May cause skin irritation, especially if the oil is past its “best by” date. Use in low dilution (1%) when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Keep out of reach of children.
