Our organically crafted Kaffir Lime Essential Oil, also known as Makrut Lime Essential Oil and Thai Bergamot Essential Oil, is steam distilled from the tart, green rinds and fresh leaves of the bumpy skinned Citrus hystrix fruit growing wild in the tropical forests of Indonesia. Also called Combava, Markrut Lime is used in Thai, Laos and South Indian cooking for a zesty lime flavor.

Kaffir Lime Oil is an unusual citrus oil, far lower in Limonene content than most other citrus oils; this essential oil has a deeper note, for perfumery, rather than the light top note we expect from a citrus oil.


Makrut Lime Essential Oil can help reduce the presence of unwanted bacterial, fungal, and viral activity, especially relating to a cold or the flu. This is an essential oil that adds sparkle and vitality to blends and is so welcome and uplifting when one is fighting a cold or flu-like symptoms. In skincare, Kaffir Lime Oil can help remove unwanted oil from the skin and help limit the effects of acne, when used at an appropriate dilution. Kaffir Lime Oil is frequently used in facial and body cleansers for its purifying properties and uplifting scent. This essential oil also helps manage pain and inflammation, support a healthy immune system, and can help ease unwanted muscle spasms.

Emotionally and energetically, Makrut Lime Essential Oil refreshes and uplifts. Kaffir Lime Leaf Oil is so welcome when dealing with situational anxiety and depression as it brings sunshine and light to the mind, body, and spirit.
