Main action on Mind/Body
  • Powerful skin healer
  • Fantastic antiseptic and bactericidal action
  • Stimulates cellular regeneration
  • Great insect repellent
Mind - A beautiful, spirit lifting oil. It has the ability to melt away even the most negative of moods and can certainly dispel that horrid Monday morning feeling! You certainly don't need to blend it with any other essential oil as its lovely scent works incredibly well on its own.
Body - It is also said that Palmarosa stimulates cellular regeneration. So as well as being a bad mood blitzer it also battles your wrinkles. It also has a powerful antibacterial action, making it's acne calming action very similar to Tea Tree (but with a much lovelier scent), so its perfect to treat and heal acne breakouts.
Blends well with - Bergamot, Geranium, Lavender, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang.
