I regularly purchase a cold-pressed key lime oil from another supplier for soaps, but I wanted a lime oil for sugar scrubs, which are a leave-on product. Despite what the product description says, distilled citrus oils are not phototoxic (cold pressed are, however). The scent tends toward lemon-lime soda which is a bit different than I am used to, but not disappointing.
This Lime EO is wonderful in CP soaps! I've made a CP soap with Lime and several other EOs, also goat milk and pureed cucumbers and it is fantastic and scent sticks very well!
This lime EO is fantastic. It makes a lovely scent, in combination with ginger. I found it to fade pretty quickly but such is life with a citrus. Mixing it with lime FO helped keep the scent a little longer.
I like using this with lemon and lemongrass EOs in my bath fizzies and bath melts. It smells so good! I've also tried it in CP soap but it faded quite a bit. I could still smell it but it was faint.
Use this essential oil with those of Patchouli and Litsea to make a wonderful Patchouli-Lime fragrance reminiscent of the 60's and 70's.
