Some information about Palmarosa
This large herbaceous plant with red flowers is cultivated in South East Asia. The leaves are distilled to produce an essential oil with a sweet, flowery scent, with notes of geranium and rose. It is highly valued in cosmetics, but also very interesting in aromatic therapy, as a general tonic, very mild anti-infectious with a broad spectrum of action (bacteria, viruses, fungi). It is reputed to cleanse skin with imperfections or subject to discomfort. With its pleasant scent, Palmarosa essential oil is traditionally appreciated in foot care. Fresh and flowery, Palmarosa essential oil can be used to make your own homemade cosmetics (e.g. deodorants with feminine notes).
This plant is very common in the East and resembles the geranium. The sweetness of its sweet and flowery fragrance can remind one of the rose. Palmarosa is often used in perfumery to replace the rose. It combines perfectly with the scents of bergamot, lemongrass, geranium, cedar, lavender, orange and ylang-ylang.
This little-known oil is recommended as a priority for the care of all skin types, its action being threefold: it moisturises the epidermis, stimulates cell regeneration and regulates sebum secretion. With regular use, it helps to reduce wrinkles. Moreover, it is one of the best antibacterial agents. It is recommended for all skin infections such as pimples, but it also acts on the digestive system.

Advice for use
Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with care. Even though essential oils have been used since ancient times, there is often a lack of knowledge about how to use them and the precautions to take. Many books deal with essential oils. It is therefore advisable to refer to them to find out the traditional methods of use.
100% pure and natural oil
An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.
Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
