Cymbopogon martinii var. martinii of the graminaceae family. This wild growing grass produces a pale yellow, mobile oil when distilled. The high geraniol content, up to 84%, aids the balancing properties of the oil. With sweet floral notes reminiscent of a rosy, geranium scent it blends well with Bergamot, Geranium, Jasmine, Rose and Sandalwood as well as many others.
This oil can be uplifting and help to maintain clarity. It is a powerful, wide spectrum bactericide. A wide variety of skin care blends include Palmarosa.
Methods of use: Bath, massage, vaporisation and skin care
Cautions: No record of skin sensitization. Those with very sensitive skins should, as when any new product is used, try a patch test before general use.
