Kaffir Lime Leaf essential oil exudes radiance with a sparkling and uplifting aroma like its fresh leaves. There are two types of essential oil made from citrus hystrix; one from the rind (peel) and the other from leaves. This is the oil made from the leaves and is concentrated with the unique aroma famous in Thai cooking. It is a strong, green, slightly sweet citrus whereas oil from the rind produces a tart citrus aroma, often called Thai Bergamot or Combava Petitgrain.
