Dried lime slices make beautiful decorations in the bath and add some extra zest to your cleansing soak.
The lime (Citrus aurantifolia) is widely cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world, including Brazil, Mexico and the West Indies.
They are picked just before they ripen, which means they’re higher in sugar and acid than lemons.
It’s these fruit acids that help to slough away dead skin cells, leaving skin clear and bright. Lime peel is a source of lime essential oil, which lifts the spirits and revives body and mind with its zingy citrus fragrance.
