I got a sample of lime essential oil last week and now it is part of a shaving soap. Following some suggestions I also made a lime/mint combination. On the list are also Lime/Coconut
and Lime/ Cherry …when I can find a source of cherry and coconut fragrance oil.

I like the lime…I just ordered a Kilo of the oil today.

Any other suggestions as to what goes good with lime?

Mike, how about a vanilla/lime or perhaps a marzipan/lime combination?

Just a suggestion, I'm no expert.

Lemon is the obvious one. Cedar is also nice with lime.

Lime/Cilantro or Lime/Basil? Lime/Cedar sounds interesting.

Lime and basil work well together.

Thanks for the suggestions fellows.

I have just about a whole Kilogram of Cedar oil on Hand and I just ordered a Kilo of Lemon oil.

Basil...that is a different one. I do not recall seeing basil on the list from my suppliers. I will inquire about it and see if I can get a sample.
