Palmarosa is steam distilled from the wild growing grass of the cymbopogon martinii plant in India.
It is one of the best natural sources of geraniol, which has a sweet, rose-like aroma, and is thus very popular with soap and cosmetic manufacturers.
Try adding 5 drops of Palmarosa, 2 drops of Ylang Ylang and 2 drops of Sandalwood to 30ml of Peach Kernel Oil for a pampering body oil.
To help aid relaxation after a stressful day, blend 2 drops of Palmarosa and 1 drop of Geranium in a teaspoonful of Sweet Almond Oil and swish into a warm bath. Soak for at least 10 minutes.
