Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.
The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

Lemon & Lime Essential Oils
The lemon essential oil is used highly as a flavoring agent in pharmaceuticals. Used extensively as a fragrance component in soaps, detergents, etc.
All of the citrus essential oils are 'photo-toxic'...which only means that you shouldn't apply them to your sun exposed skin as they can make you more prone to possible sunburns.
Lemon essential oil is anti-anemic, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, an astringent, bactericidal, diuretic, it stimulates the white blood cells, repels insects and in general is an all over tonic.
Lime essential oil is produced the same way as our friend the lemon and shares many of it's qualities.
It is an antiseptic, antiviral, helps to stimulate the appetite, bactericidal, combats fever and a general all over tonic.
The aromatherapy benefits of both lemon & lime are very similar...
Skin care: acne, brittle nails, boils, corns, cuts, greasy skin, herpes, mouth ulcers, varicose veins & warts.
Circulation, Muscles & Joints: arthritis, cellulitis, high blood pressure, poor circulation & rheumatism.
