Lime essential oil has a fresh aroma that is stimulating and uplifting. It can calm and clear the mind. Similar to other citrus oils, it is just a happy oil that can bring a smile to ones face.

Lime also has properties that allow it to boost the immune systems and ease respiratory issues like coughs and congested sinuses. It can alleviate exhaustion and promote creativity and focus.

Eucalyptus essential oil (Eucalyptus globulus) is well known for its decongestant properties. Most respiratory conditions can benefit from this antiseptic oil.

Eucalyptus has a sharp aroma that can help increase concentration and lift emotions. It can refresh the mind and improve overall wellbeing.

When you feel a cold coming on or have been around sick people, try this chest rub recipe and see how supportive & refreshing these two oils can be together.

Eucalyptus & Lime Chest Rub

Directions

Add essential oils to dropper bottle and fill rest of bottle with jojoba oil (or carrier oil of choice). To use, apply several drops to chest and rub in. We are using distilled lime because it is not phototoxic so sun exposure after using this oil is OK.

Photoxic oils can cause skin damage when used and then the skin is exposed to the sun. Expressed lime essential oil is phototoxic.

Distilled Lime is steam distilled instead of expressed and does not contain the component that causes the oil to be phototoxic. It is a good option when applying lime oil topically. You can find distilled lime here by Plant Therapy.

Aromatherapy Inhaler

You can also use this combination in other aromatherapy methods like in an essential oil inhaler. Just add 6 drops of lime and 6 drops of eucalyptus to cotton wick and place into inhaler. Inhale the aroma to help clear respiratory issues.

Steam Bowl

How about a steam? You can add 6 drops of Lime and 6 drops of eucalyptus in a mini vial, swirl bottle to blend the two oils.This will create a master blend you can use for about 12 steams because you only need one drop of oil in a steam bowl.

Get a bowl of hot warm and one drop from the mini vial. Inhale the steam from the bowl from a comfortable distance for about 5 minutes. You can put a towel over your head and make a tent if you prefer. Repeat a few times a day if needed.

Diffuser Blend

Diffusing these two oils can also be a good option. Just use 3 drops of lime and 3 drops of eucalyptus. Use the recommended water amount required for your diffuser and enjoy.
