Emotional & spiritual benefits
Lime is very uplifting and stimulating. It brings brightness and freshness to both the mind and the environment. It can be used to awaken a tired and apathetic mood, activating the mind to be courageous, energetic and take initiative. Helpful when feeling sad and gloomy as it can lift the mood and brighten your outlook.

Cosmetic benefits
A popular men’s cosmetic ingredient, Lime has a unisex appeal. It is astringent, toning, cleansing and refreshing, lending itself well to facial products, as well as aftershaves and colognes. Its antiseptic properties make it perfect for oily skin types and preventing breakouts.

Formulation types
Lime’s zesty presence brings a fresh scent to any natural cosmetic product. It is ideal for lip balms, providing a pleasant natural flavour. Lime can be used in aftershaves, cleansing and stimulating face, hand and body washes, massage products, colognes, essential oil blends, soaps, summery body products and more. It is often used in male products, particularly blended with woody masculine notes.
