Raspberry Lime essentail oil for a energized massage


Have you ever felt re-inspired about your job after a vacation? Or felt stuck on a project, and gotten a new idea after taking a break?
 
Sometimes the best way to get a fresh infusion of energy is to kick back and relax.
 
Lime essential oil knows all about this!
 
It manages to combine relaxation with feeling energized. Lime helps us release stress and clear our minds, so we can approach the day with a sunny outlook. It’s right at home, for example, in an invigorating massage oil . . . like this one:
 
Raspberry Lime Massage Oil
  • 1 oz (30 ml) Red raspberry seed oil (Rubus idaeus)
  • 10 drops distilled Lime essential oil (Citrus aurantifolia)
Make your blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) glass bottle. Just combine both ingredients, close the bottle, and shake gently.
 
Doesn’t the distilled Lime paired with the red raspberry sound so delicious? It is! The aroma of red raspberry seed oil is very delicate, containing just hints of the fruit—it actually reminds me of olive oil. It’s full of antioxidants and is so good for skin. (I know—I wish it smelled like raspberries too, but the Lime takes care of the delicious aroma!)
 
I love this blend for a morning or afternoon massage, when Lime’s energy can brighten up the rest of my day.
 
Maybe you’re thinking, “I heard that citrus oils are phototoxic.” It’s true that cold pressed Lime is a phototoxic essential oil. Phototoxicity is a light-induced reaction to a photoactive substance, and requires both contact with the phototoxic substance and subsequent exposure to strong sunlight (UV light).

Maybe now you’re thinking, what did Andrea just say? Let me try again! Phototoxicity is a reaction to sunlight, which can cause burning, blistering, and discoloration (abnormally dark patches and red areas) of the skin. Some essential oils are termed “phototoxic,” since they increase the likelihood of a phototoxic reaction. You do not want to have this reaction on your skin, trust me!
 
Lime is one of these essential oils . . . but only if it’s been obtained by cold pressing. Distilled Lime is not phototoxic, while cold pressed Lime is phototoxic. However, both distilled Lime and cold pressed Lime have the Latin name Citrus aurantifolia, so it’s important to know how your essential oil was obtained when you’re buying it.
