Take in a breath of beauty with Palmarosa. This essential oil has a bright and cleansing aroma with slightly sweet and floral notes. It contains a high percentage of geraniol, which is one of the same primary aromatic constituents in Rose essential oil. This component may also support clean, healthy-looking skin as well as balance moisture levels in the skin. It’s no wonder Palmarosa often finds a place in skin care routines!
400 farmers participate in the production process of doTERRA Palmarosa essential oil. Of those farmers, 80% are women!
Palmarosa essential oil comes from a tall, herbaceous grass. This perennial thrives in humid tropical or wetland conditions. doTERRA sources Palmarosa essential oil from the eastern plains of Nepal, though it is originally native to India and even carries the nickname “Indian geranium.” The grass can grow to be up to ten feet tall and requires abundant sunshine to grow. Once harvested, the grass is then dried and steam distilled to create a fresh, clear-to-pale-yellow essential oil.
The aroma of Palmarosa pairs well with the following essential oils: Bergamot, Rose, Cedarwood, Geranium, Lime, Lavender, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang.
