PALMAROSA (Cymbopogon martinii), India.

Palmarosa (palm rose) belongs to the same family as Lemongrass and Citronella; it is a wild growing plant with fragrant grassy leaves. It has quite an unusual scent , especially considering it comes from a grass: a sweet, floral fragrance with a hint of Rose, hence the name.

On first smell, it doesn’t immediately conjure up roses, but it has a lingering scent that is reminiscent of the flower – and this is why the oil, or derivatives of it, are often used by unethical sellers to adulterate or pad out Rose oil, which is much more expensive to produce. Palmarosa can be used in your own blends or for perfumery, along with Rose, Rose Geranium, Geranium etc, to give an extra rose-like scent and enhance the floralness of your blend.

Palmarosa oil in itself has a calming yet uplifting effect on the emotions. It also acts as a tonic on the digestive system, stimulates the appetite, and may be helpful to those suffering from Anorexia Nervosa. In skincare, Palmarosa has a hydrating effect on skin tissue, and stimulates natural secretion of sebum. It is generally non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitising – a very handy oil to have in your collection.
