Palmarosa Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Palmarosa Essential Oil is steam distilled from the aromatic, flowering grasses of the Cymbopogon martinii var. motia plant growing on sunny mountain slopes in Nepal. The grassy leaves of the wild-growing Palmarosa plant is in the same family as Lemongrass and Citronella. The essential oil has a smooth, fresh, sweet-grassy, mild rosy-geraniol aroma, with delicate citrus zest top notes.
With its rich distribution of Rose alcohols, Rose esters and Rose aldehydes, Palmarosa Oil truly has a complex aroma and the generally beneficial properties inherent in this arrangement of molecules. Once called
Turkish Geranium oil, Palmarosa Essential Oil dates back to the Bombay shipping ports of the Red Sea and was transported partly by land, to Constantinople and Bulgaria, where the oil was often used for the adulteration of Rose Oil. Currently, Palmarosa Leaf Oil is extensively used in perfumery and for scenting soaps.
