I use this lime in a hair spritz & I love it. I also love that the .5 oz & 2 oz bottles now have a dropper top.
A little too fruity
Normally with citrus oils you get the scent of the zest and not so much the fruit. This is what we experienced with the standard lime EO. We are switching to all organic ingredients and have found this to be too sweet for our current formulations. It is also not as strong as the standard essential oil.
