How To Make Lime Oil

Can’t find lime oil at a store? We’ve got you covered. Here’s a great recipe from Dr. Joseph Mercola that will help you prepare lime oil in your home.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A fine mesh sieve
  • 2 cups of olive oil
  • 2 whole limes
  • A paring knife (a citrus zester will also work)

Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a pan. Use the knife or zester to cut the lime down, forming quarter-inch strips. Add the zest to the oil and allow it to simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and cover it. Let the oil and zest steep for two and a half to three hours. After this, run it through the sieve into an airtight container and store it in a dark, cool place. Your new batch of lime oil is now ready to use. It does not require refrigeration, and will last about two weeks.
