There are multiple ways to use lime oil, depending on what health condition you want to treat or address:
You can relieve stress, exhaustion and anxiety or calm your mind by diffusing a few drops using a vaporizer. This also helps boost your immune system, especially after an illness. You can add it to your bathwater as well.
For colds, coughs, sinusitis, sore throat and chest congestion, add a few drops to a bowl of steaming water and inhale it. You can also mix a few drops with a carrier oil, then rub it on your neck and chest.
If you have rheumatism and arthritis, put two to three drops in an ounce of carrier oil, then massage on the affected areas regularly. This method also works for cellulite and varicose veins.
Treat bleeding cuts and wounds by putting two drops in a cold compress and pressing it on the affected areas.
