Kobashi Palmarosa Essential Oil
KOBASHI PALMAROSA OIL 100% Pure
LATIN NAME: Cymbopogon martinii - AKA 'Indian geranium oil'
SOURCE: Steamed distilled from the grass
COLOUR: Clear yellow tint
AROMA: sweet and floral, rose and geranium like with herbal, green tea notes.
QUALITIES: Excellent skin care oil, indicated for acne, dermatitis and minor skin infections. Helps to regulate the production of sebum and moisturise the skin. Ideal during difficult times and for helping with nervous exhaustion and stress related conditions. Great to vaporise as it is a very powerful, wide spectrum bactericide. We use neat palmarosa (a few drops) on a cloth to wipe around kitchen surfaces to kill germs, as it is particularly active against various bacteria responsible for intestinal infections. Palmarosa is often used to extend (adulterate) the costly rose oil.
Organically grown: no pesticides or herbicides used. Blends well with Cedarwood, Geranium, Ho leaf, Sandalwood and the Floral oils. A member of the Gramineae family, a fast growing, tall aromatic plant native to India and Pakistan.
