Lime essential oil distilled - Citrus aurantifolia (Christman) Swingle - West Indian type
The screw-pressing of the fruit produces a juice-essential oil emulsion. After the juice is largely separated from the settled oil layer, still steam-distillation of the remaining juice-oil emulsion takes place. This results in changes to the essential oil that are similar to the changes induced by thermal treatment in highly acidic conditions.
