All About Essential Oils: Palmarosa

October 15, 2015

When you're checking out our Custom Blends menu, you'll notice that Palmarosa is one of the options. Palmarosa is quite possibly one of the lesser known essential oils, but it is really a special one. Fun note: in the (seed) quiz to determine your ideal essential oil, my own quiz shows that Palmarosa is the oil for me.

Distilled from palmarosa leaves, 100% pure palmarosa essential oil (Cymbopogon Martinii) features a sweet, floral, rose-like aroma. Traditionally, palmarosa essential oil has been used to clear the mind and combat nervous physical exhaustion. Medical research has also found it to have antibacterial properties.
