Aromatic Scent: Organic Palmarosa Essential Oil has a sweet, floral fragrance with a hint of rose.
Common Use: Organic Palmarosa Essential Oil can be used as an antiseptic and bactericide, as a stomachic to relieve the discomforts of flu and high temperatures. It can also be used to normalize thyroid, nervous exhaustion and stress related conditions. Organic Palmarosa Oil is widely used in the perfumery industry for creating exotic blends.
Spiritual Use: Palmarosa helps to open the Heart Chakra and connect with Mother Earth energy which in turn provides us with a sense of security and unconditional love. When we are in the state of fear our Heart energy closes and we become shut down.
Palmarosa releases emotions of shut down, resentment and powerless that come from keeping a closed Heart from Mother issues. When we embrace the energy of a Mother or Mother Earth we feel protected and nourished from within.
What Chakra is connected: Heart
History: Palmarosa was known as Indian Geranium Oil and used in combination with the more expensive rose oils. The grass grows wild in India, particularly northeast of Bombay toward the Himalaya mountains, Nepal and to a lesser extent, in Pakistan.
