About Palmarosa Essential Oil
Our exceptional Palmarosa Essential Oil (Cymbopogon martinii) is a wildcrafted, therapeutic quality essential oil steam distilled from the aerial parts of this beautifully fragrant native grass. It comes from plants that grow at high elevations in the mountains of Nepal where the unique soil and climate impart sweet, rosy notes to the aroma of the oil. Palmarosa essential oil is high in the constituent geraniol and its aroma is similar to that of Rose Geranium but with subtle grassy notes that make it distinct. It blends beautifully with cedarwood, coriander, and most florals but be aware that its aroma is delicate and while it will subtly modify many other scents it will not stand out in a blend and will be totally overwhelmed by strong aromas.
Palmarosa essential oil has long been used by aromatherapists, most frequently for its reported beneficial effects on the skin (especially dry and/or mature skin) and for its alleged subtle effects on the emotions and spirit. It has been said by aromatherapists to have calming. comforting and centering effects; to clear away feelings of oppression; and, to support greater adaptability.
