Tincture
Overview

Citrus Citrus oils are obtained from various Citrus species found within the family of Rutaceae. Citrus oils are located as glands within the peel and the cuticles of the fruits.
Some citrus oils are also found within the leaves and flower parts. Peel and cuticle oils are removed mechanically by cold pressing.
Key lime juice (Citrus aurantifolia), is an effective antidote for the painful oral irritation and inflammation that result from biting into aroids (Dieffenbachia, Xanthosoma and Philodendron species).
Lime juice can also been applied to relieve the effects of stinging corals.
The juice is used in diaphoretic (inducing perspiration) and diuretic (promotes production of urine) draughts.
It is recommended in acute rheumatism and sometimes given to counteract narcotic poisons, especially opium.

Pharmacology

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), lime has Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status for use in food in the United States when it is taken by mouth in amounts commonly found in foods.
Limes are high in vitamin C, calcium, iron, copper and dietary fiber, making it one of the healthiest fruits.
The antiseptic, antimicrobial, and mucus-dissolving properties of lime juice make it helpful for relieving cold and flu symptoms.

The essential oil of Citrus aurantifolia (limes), was studied for its potential spasmolytic effects in relation to its chemical composition. The antispasmodic activity (relieves spasm of smooth muscle) was evaluated on isolated rabbit jejunum, aorta and uterus. The results indicated that the essential oil of C. aurantifolia possesses important spasmolytic properties, which are likely to be due to its major constituents, limonene (58.4%), beta-pinene (15.4%), gamma-terpinene (8.5%), and citral (4.4%).

Limes contain flavonoids called flavonol glycosides. These have been included in cancer research due to their ability to stop mitosis (cell division) in specific types of cancer.
