A fruit with many names, Makrut Lime may also be referred to as Combava, Leech Lime, Kaffir Lime, and Thai Bergamot. It is a very unique citrus essential oil due to having a limonene content that is much lower than other citrus oils, such as Lemon. This allows for a unique aromatic profile that is not only bright and fresh, but also gives way to notes of pine and a touch of spice. The fruit itself looks very similar to a small bergamot, with a rough, bumpy green rind surrounded by prickly stems and large, glossy green leaves.
During times of seasonal illness, diffuse Makrut Lime to help keep the household healthy. Its sparkling, vibrant aroma is uplifting and energizing, which may not only be a welcome treat when feeling unwell, but can promote feelings of happiness and alertness. Topically, Makrut Lime may ease muscle tension, making it an excellent addition to massage oil blends. Its purifying properties can also help keep skin looking clear and fresh, or use in a DIY hair mask to promote luscious locks. Just remember to dilute in a carrier oil before applying topically. Our steam-distilled Makrut Lime does not contain furanocoumarins, meaning it is safe to use on the skin without concerns of phototoxicity. And finally, this multi-faceted citrus encourages digestive health and is a great addition to your favorite tummy-supporting blends.
Aromatic - Diffuse using 3-4 drops per 100 mL of water or use in a personal inhaler. Topical - Dilute to 2-4% in a carrier.
