Keep reading to know about Lime and the oil it produces.

Lime has been used for centuries in cooking, cleaning, personal care and aromatherapy. Limes are grown throughout the year, mostly in warmer climates like those of tropical regions and subtropical regions. Botanically known as Citrus Aurantifolia, Lime has a fresh citrusy flavor, so as the scent of the oil derived from it. Limes are usually found on short shrubs. Once the fruit is ready, the citrus aurantifolia is harvested. The peel that contains the highest amount of Vitamin C, is steam-distilled to produce this tart, refreshing essential oil.

This citrus fruit is green in color and has a round shape with a diameter of 3 to 6 cm (1.2 to 2.4 inch) and contains acidic juice vesicles. The several species of these citrus trees contain fruits called limes which also include ‘Key Lime’ (Citrus Aurantiifolia). The diameter of this fruit is 2.5 to 5 cm. As compared to other limes, Citrus Aurantiifolia is smaller, seedier, has strong aroma and higher acidity. The other names of key lime include West Indian lime, bartender’s lime, omani lime, or Mexican lime. This is a shrubby tree with a height of 5 m (16 ft). The ovate leaves of this plant are 2.5 to 9 cm long that resemble orange leaves. The yellowish white flowers have a light purple tinge on the margins and have a diameter of 2.5 cm. You can see both the flowers and the fruits of this plant throughout the year, but they are most abundant from May to September in the Northern Hemisphere.

Citrus Aurantiifolia is native to Southeast Asia and got famous in Egypt and northern Africa in 10th century. In 13th century, they became common in Spain and from there, they spread throughout the rest of the Europe. The plants were cultivated in warm Caribbean climates when Columbus took these green fruits with him on his second voyage in 1493. Since they are rich in vitamin C, they were used by British explorers to prevent scurvy. However, they were introduced to the United States in the 16th century by the Spanish explorers who brought them to the Florida Keys.
