5 Reasons to use Lime Essential Oil

Lime Essential oil is one of my favorites in the kitchen!

Essential oil in the kitchen? Yes really, you can cook with some Essential oils. Check out Young Living’s Vitality line of oils which are labeled for consumption as a supplement and can be used in the kitchen.

Essential oils can add great flavor to dishes, similar to how an extract or herbs are used to flavor things. When using Essential oils in the kitchen remember that exposing the oils to heat may damage the oils properties. So if you want the oils properties to stay intact you should add them last or use them in recipes that don’t require heat.

Lime Essential oil is great to have on had. I don’t know how many times I’ve bought limes, intending on using them, and when I finally get around to cooking with them they are hard green balls. Lime Essential oils solves that problem and always tastes fresh.

In most cases a little goes a long way and I find I only need a drop or two of Essential oil for my recipe. If your need  requires less than a drop of oil, take a toothpick to the rim of the oil bottle and add the oil via the toothpick tip. This work especially well with very potent oils like oregano.

5 Reasons why you should be using Lime Essential oil.

  1.  It’s aroma can help you fee inspired and uplifted
  2.  It helps deodorize.  Add a few drops to a small box of baking soda  and place in the fridge to freshen and deodorize.
  3. It works amazingly at removing sticky or greasy things.
  4. It’s great for your skin, helping to moisturize and control acne.
  5. It’s safe to cook with. Add one drop to your salsa or guacamole to a refreshing zing.
