Palmarosa Essential Oil
Antifungal, soothing and rejuvenating. Palmarosa is a versatile essential oil that seems undervalued in aromatherapy, perhaps due to poor coverage in books. It is a powerful antimicrobial that can out-perform tea tree as an antifungal, making it perfect to combat stubborn fungal infections. The powerful anti-viral properties of Palmarosa Essential Oil could also mean it is your best line of natural defence against colds and flu, especially when blended with other antiviral oils.
It has an unusual, exotic rose-like fragrance that is quite distinctive, and works great in a wide range of applications. And when used in skincare, Palmarosa Essential Oil simply excels. It balances sebum production, stimulates cellular regeneration, encourages elasticity, moisturises dry and mature skin, plus it effectively combats acne. All this, at a fraction of the cost of rose oil!
In massage blends Palmarosa Essential Oil eases the pain associated with overworked muscles and joints, well as soothing general aches and pains, cramps, and gastric conditions. Due to its calming yet uplifting properties, palmarosa oil is valuable when treating emotional conditions such as anxiety, nervous exhaustion and stress. Palmarosa was shown in tests to be a very effective insect repellent comparable to citronella.
