The lime was once the secret ingredient of extended sea travel. In the 1800s, British sailors could last longer at sea—while remaining healthy—thanks to a daily allotment of citrus. The vitamin C found in citrus fruits like limes helped to prevent scurvy, an enemy of the world’s navies. It was because of the British forces’ use of limes that they got the nickname “Limey.” But limes aren’t just a good way to prevent scurvy. In India, limes are used to remove or repel evil spirits and are combined with chilies to create a protective charm against the evil eye.
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
