Favorite Oil Friday: Lime Vitality


This week I have been loving and using Young Living's Lime Vitality Essential Oil. Lime essential oil has many benefits. Limes contain a rich supply of vitamins and minerals and d-limonene found in citrus oils. My favorite oils that contains lime (and it was my first Favorite Oil Friday post {Stress Away}.

1. It has a fresh uplifting aroma that stimulates your senses
2. It may support healthy immune systems
3. It may aid in mental clarity and reduce stress

Because it is approved as a Food Additive (FA) and Flavoring Agent (FL) by the FDA, Lime Oils is readily available on the market in many different qualities. However, only therapeutic grade essential oils should be used for best results- which is why I love Young Living's Vitality line! If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult with your physician before using Lime Vitality Essential Oils.

Some of my favorite ways to use Lime Vitality are:

Citrus Vinaigrette
1/2 cup of organic olive oils
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2-3 drops of Lime Vitality essential oil
3-4 drops of Tangerine Vitality essential oil
1-2 tablespoons sweetener (I love local organic honey) to taste
Salt + Pepper to taste
{mix together and use however you like- great over sturdy greens like arugula}

Watermelon Spritzer
3 cups of chilled watermelon, cubed
1 cup of coconut water
1 drop of Lime Vitality
{blend, pour, serve}

There's so much more you can do with Lime Vitality! Add a little Lime Vitality to berry dishes to compliment their natural sweetness.

What is your favorite way to use Lime?
