Lime Citrus aurantifolia

Known for its distinct aroma and taste, Lime provides cleansing benefits when taken internally or used topically—making it the perfect oil for purifying skin and surfaces.

Why Brazil?

The south of Brazil has the perfect climate for citrus growing. It is ideal for growing some of the finest quality citrus fruit, and consequently, producing high quality citrus essential oils.

How does it work?

The oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of fresh limes. Citrus oils are typically produced in conjunction with a juicing operation where the essential oils are expressed from the rinds and then juice is pressed from the whole fruit—this is the case with Lime.

Generating Jobs and Sustaining Long-Term Partnerships

We are proud to support hundreds of small-scale farmers who grow our citrus fruit, and value maintaining the long-term partnerships we’ve developed with producers in southern Brazil.
