From the same family as Lemongrass and Citronella, Palmarosa has a gentler nature and fragrance (more similar to Geranium) and is used for its calming and restorative effects on the mind, skin and body.

Nature/Essence – Balancing & Restorative

Palmarosa oil is used for dull, dry or devitalised skin to aid hydration and regeneration. It has antiseptic activity and is balancing and gentle on the skin - a good choice for blemishes, fungal conditions, eczema and dry cracked skin.

Palmarosa is considered a digestive and overall tonic, helping to maintain wellbeing and restore healthy balance. It can be used in a massage oil to revive the body and stimulate digestion, and makes a good addition in personal insect repellent sprays.

Palmarosa has a calming effect, a nice oil to help restore the nervous system during stress and exhaustion. It is said to help regain a sense of inner security, a good choice when jealousy or internal conflict are upsetting your emotional balance. It is said to help stimulate appetite and is useful for those who can’t eat due to nerves or emotional upset.

Like its close relatives Lemongrass and Citronella, Palmarosa can be used as an insect repellent and air purifier.

Interesting smell

Not my most favourite smell, but will go nicely in a blend I'm making :)
