Palmarosa Essential Oil, a pale yellow to olive liquid, emanates a sweet, floral, almost geranium-like scent. Derived from steam distillation of palmarosa grass, this oil harmonizes well with geranium, rosewood, sandalwood, cedarwood, lime, orange, and bergamot. Palmarosa adds a touch of floral elegance to various applications. Historically intertwined with wild-growing herbaceous plants in India and Pakistan, Palmarosa continues to enchant with its medium-strength, middle aromatic notes.
