Cold pressed Persian Lime essential oil has a soft tart sweet aroma. In natural perfume it adds an interesting crisp sweet citrus aroma without overpowering and pairs well with all citrus oils.

Lime essential oil has antispasmodic properties beneficial for coughs and colds caused by congestion of the throat and chest.
