Cautions / Safety Data
Is not photosensitising. The expeller pressed Lime is photosensitising, but the distilled Lime is not. Do not use on the skin full strength. Always dilute in appropriate carriers before use. Not for internal use. If pregnant or suffering from serious medical conditions, consult a qualified health professional, experienced in the use of essential oils.
Steam distilled Lime essential oil produces more cooling chemistry with α‐phellandrene, 1,4‐cineole, p‐cymene, α‐fenchyl alcohol, and α‐ and β‐terpineols that are not usually found in the expeller pressed oil.It is also safe to use in the sun as the furocoumarins found in expeller pressed oil which cause photosensitivity, are lost in the distillation. The sweet candy like aroma will leave you feeling free and easy.
