Lime oil, when used in an oil burner, stimulates a tired   mind and helps ease anxiety, apathy, and depression.   It is useful to reduce fevers associated with colds, sore   throats, and flu. It increases immunity while easing coughs,   bronchitis, sinusitis, and asthma. It is said to be helpful for  arthritis,  rheumatism and poor circulation, as well as for obesity and cellulite.
