Powerful Lime Essence

It has a pungent solvent odor which resembles gasoline - that makes it really hard to detect any lime underneath. I can't argue with Now Foods telling us that the oil was "cold expeller-pressed", but that doesn't exclude them diluting it afterwards...

a deep clean lemony essence. it's Food Grade too, so one might use it to enhance foods & beverages.

This oil saved me this summer from flies in the kitchen.

This doesn't smell like natural lime. It smells artificial like something you'd find in cheap lime candy. Perhaps something in the processing causes the scent to change or disintegrate. It's not bad, but I was hoping it would smell more like a freshly cut lime. Regardless, I occasionally use this in my homemade cleaners for added fragrance and for the disinfectant properties of citrus.

I love the scent of this oil. I was worried that it would have a bitter lime pith scent to it but I was pleased to find that it smells of sweet lime, like a lime candy scent. It's fantastic in soaps!
Not for the bath

Very, very potent. I put a couple of drops in my bath, and my legs stung fiercely/immediately. I use this product to help my kitchen drain smell clean.

Like this lime oil in combination with Atlas Cedar, Cinnamon, and Geranium. Great "party mood" parfume (essential oils in a base of jojoba).
Just like fresh limes

I was also worried this would smell bitter but it smells sweet and wonderful. This smell just puts a smile on my face! Make a great room spray, mixed with orange, grapefruit and lemon oil!
I like it!

I like the smell and it's very strong... I could smell it before the iherb box was fully open.
