How LIME essential oil can boost your immune system and take out bubble gum

Do you wish you had more energy and a brighter attitude? How about a natural way to boost your immune system or a non-toxic cleaner? These are just a few of the awesome uses of Lime Essential Oil.

Lime Essential Oil has an energizing aroma and refreshing taste. Although lime is mostly known as a cooking ingredient, Lime Essential Oil has far more amazing properties than people are aware of.

Uses of Lime Essential Oil*

A great pick-me-up and stress reducer
Add 3-4 drops lime oil to your diffuser. Sit back and inhale deeply. You can also inhale by breathing from cupped hands with a few drops of Essential Oil, or just straight from the bottle. This will also promote balance and overall wellness at the same time help reduce stress and anxiousness and promote a feelings of calm.

Give your immune system a boost
Diffuse Lime Essential Oil in a diffuser or ingest a few drops in water. This is especially important after an illness.
Try adding some drops to your bath water as well. Mix with a carrier oil like coconut oil first for best results.

Help fight against respiratory issues, sore throat, or sinus discomfort
Diffuse or drink as mentioned above. Also, dilute a couple of drops in a carrier oil and rub it on your chest and neck for relief.

For flavoring and internal support/detox
Put 1-2 drops into each glass of water you drink for a gentle cleanse. Use in food to create that tangy flavor. Great flavor booster in smoothies and ice cream.

Dilute one drop Lime Essential Oil with 7 drops of fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil and apply to your skin. It will not only cleanse and gently exfoliate, but also assist your body in repairing cells.

Essential Oils you should never give your Cat

Are you considering using something natural like essential oils for your cat?

For us, Casper kitty is not just a pet, he is a valuable and loved member of our family. So, we are as concerned about his health as we are our own. Casper gets good food and plenty of exercise. But, as an outdoor cat, he has also had his share of bumps and scrapes. While we have a great vet and would not hesitate to use him when needed, we treat most of Casper’s health issues like we treat our own – with essential oils.

Although Essential Oils have been shown to be beneficial to humans and animals alike, a word of caution when using them on our feline friends – cats are extremely sensitive to EOs and can suffer harmful consequences if wrong oils or wrong dosages are given. Even inhaling a sensitive oil can pose problems.

The simple explanation is that cats lack a crucial liver enzyme that allow them to breakdown otherwise harmless compounds (hydrocarbons and terpenoids) that are found in many essential oils. These compounds are then stored in the liver and can cause liver damage. Sometimes it can take a long time for for these effects to manifest and by then it is often too late.

Here are the oils that can be harmful to kitty:

But it isn’t just a simple matter of staying away from certain essential oils, cats are also very sensitive to insecticides, herbicides, and other chemicals that find their way into the majority of EOs on the market. So, make sure whatever oils you use are 100% pure, therapeutic grade.

Once you have decided on a safe essential oil brand, you will find that there are as many opinions on what specific oils are safe and oil uses as there are oils. So the oils that I recommend are what I feel comfortable using on Casper.
