  • Topically: Dilute a few drops of Lime Oil into a carrier oil, massage oil, or moisturiser to soothe fatigued muscles.
  • Skin Serum: Add a few drops to a carrier oil of choice; we recommend Jojoba Oil or Rosehip Oil as these carrier oils are well known for their skin benefits. Once diluted, apply nightly to desired areas, avoiding your eyes and sensitive areas.
    See topical dilution guide below for safe topical application
