Lime Essential OilWelcome to another of Organica J’s Top Ten Uses! This week we will be focusing on 10 helpful uses for Lime essential oil.  Its one of the oils that we are using in a new product that we are launching next month and it is a very handy oil to have.   Many of the uses are similar to lemon essential oil, in fact it is often used its place.  I find that both essential oils have their place in different situations.  For using essential oils for specific conditions always contact a qualified aromatherapist.
