Why Should I Buy This Product?

Kaffir lime leaves are also known as makrut leaves, kaffir lime leaves or magrood leaves.

If you cannot get kaffir lime leaves, it is possible to substitute with fresh, tender young lime or lime leaves.

The leaves can be stored frozen for as long as you like; add fresh leaves to a plastic bag and place in the freezer. The other storage method is to keep dried kaffir lime leaves.

In recent times, kaffir lime zest has been added to Cajun cuisine.

The citrus juice used to be included in Thai ointments and shampoos, and in tonics in Malaysia. Kaffir lime shampoo leaves the hair squeaky clean and invigorates the scalp. Kaffir lime has also been used for ages as a natural bleach to remove tough stains.

The essential oils in the fruit are incorporated into various ointments, and the rind is an ingredient in medical tonics believed to be good for the blood. Like lemon grass and galangal, the rind is also known to have beneficial properties for the digestive system. In folk medicine, the juice of kaffir lime is said to promote gum health and is recommended for use in brushing teeth and gums. It is believed to freshen one’s mental outlook and ward off evil spirits

Warning: Known for a long time as Kaffir Lime, the Thai name “bai makrut” is now considered the much more politically correct term, as “Kaffir” in Arabic means “unbeliever” and as such, Kaffir can have derogatory implications.
