We specialize in providing Palmarosa Oil to the clients. Palmarosa is a wild herbaceous plant, growing to a height of nine feet (three meters). With long, slender stems, fragrant grassy leaves, and flowers in ‘terminal’ clusters, Palmarosa is a member of the Cymbopogon (formerly Andropogon) genus of aromatic tropical grasses. Palmarosa has a soft, lemony-fresh green scent with hints of geranium and rose. Considered a “middle-note”, Palmarosa essential oil is extracted by steam or water distillation of the fresh or dried grass. Also known as (Indian) rosha, Palmarosa Oil has been distilled since the 18th century. Featured in the Indian Materia Medica, Palmarosa Oil and the dried herb are both used in Ayurvedic medicine.

Like both Rose and Geranium, Palmarosa clears heat and strengthens yin-energy (the body’s calming, moistening functions). It is thought to be beneficial to the skin because of its moisture balancing effects.
Palmarosa essential oil may be beneficial for candida, the cardiovascular system, circulation, digestion, infection, nervous system, and rashes.

Palmarosa’s most common application is in the treatment of skin challenges as well as in general skin care. Its ability to tone up the yin gives it a superb hydrating property.

Reinforcing the Heart-yin and calming the Mind (Shen), it is indicted for palpations, restlessness, insomnia, and anxiety. The elegant, long stems of this aromatic grass convey the principle of flow or movement. Its zylem tissue transports water and nutrients from the roots to the plants aerial parts; while its phloem tissue transports nutrients manufactures in the leaves to other parts of the plant. All the while the stem tissues are also used for water and food storage (this function is yin in nature). Conveying a sense of movement, containment, and contentment (purna), palmarosa essential oil encourages free-flowing adaptability and a sense of security and trust in the divine flow of life. The gentleness of Palmarosa’s lemony-rose aroma is soothing and astringent, dispersing, and gathering.
