Lime Oil Distilled Mexican Type

The screw-pressing of the fruit produces a juice-essential oil emulsion. The emulsion is then steam distilled and the oil separated from the condensate by decantation. The drastic thermal treatment in the highly acidic lime juice leads to changes in the essential oil. However these changes are appareciated for some applications and furthermore, having undergone drastic acid-thermal action, the oil is extremely stable in acid applications.
