Lime essential oil is cold pressed/expressed from the rind of the fruit from the Citrus aurantifolia, also known as key lime, a small vigorous tree or large shrub. It may be multi-stemmed with densely packed slender, twisting and spreading branches. These branches are armed with numerous sharp spines that measure up to ⅜ inch long. It grows in tropical and warm subtropical regions, up to elevations of approximately 4000 feet.
The Key lime is smaller, seedier, has higher acidity, stronger aroma, and thinner rind than the Persian lime (Citrus × latifolia). It is valued for its characteristic flavor. The name comes from its association with the Florida Keys, where it is best known as the flavoring ingredient in Key lime pie. It is also known as West Indian lime, bartender's lime, Omani lime, or Mexican lime, the last classified as a distinct race with a thicker skin and darker green colour. Philippine varieties have various names, including dayap and bilolo.
