My top three uses for DoTerra Lime:
- Added to beverages.I love lime in my water, Perrier, or spritzers and knew that this was the ticket for me to add cleansing properties to my beverages without having to keep limes in the house all the time. Wow! I was blown away by the fresh flavor. So why stop there?
- In preparation of guacamole or salad dressings. I started using this for any recipe that I would usually use lime for. My favourite is guacamole which I will give you the recipe for. It is a simple bland of 3 mashed avocados, 1 diced tomato, 1 tsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. garlic puree, and 1 drop lime essential oil. If you don’t have garlic puree on hand, then replace the combo of olive oil and garlic with 1 Tbsp. Italian salad dressing. Voila! A perfect dip for veggies, whole grain crackers or a nachos treat like these.
- Diffusing with lemon, grapefruit, and/or peppermint. These blends are refreshing and uplifting. Nice for a weekend morning at home….especially in the summer.
Another use that I learned recently is that Lime can be used on a cotton swab to take stickers off of places that stickers are not to be. Yep! With two 4 year olds and a 2 year old in the house, I often find stickers in random places. The left over “stickiness” used to drive me crazy, but not any more! Lime to the rescue.
Hope this gives you a fun insight into new ways to use Lime.
Until next time…stay healthy!
