History and Background

In Chinese Medicine, Palmarosa is cool and moist in energy. It also clears heat and strengthens yin energy, reinforces the heart yin and calms the mind.

We do not know when this plant was first distilled into an essential oil, but once it reached Europe, it was used in perfumery and skin care, including many soaps and facial products.

An interesting fact is that Palmarosa was once used as a flavoring for tobacco.

Holistically, Palmarosa encourages adaptability and feelings of security, while centering and comforting the heart. Good oil for those who are resistant to change and have difficulty letting go.

This is not an oil that I was familiar with until I purchased it three months ago. One way I use this oil to anoint candles to be used in healing workings. It is rejuvenating and reminds me of Springtime.
