This essential oil is extracted from wild grass, which is mowed just before flowering. There are two types of plants – “motia” and “sofia”, of which “motia” is more valued for its more pleasant aroma. Because of the rose-like scent, previously unscrupulous sellers of essential oils even liked to dilute extremely expensive rose oils with palmarosa oil. In fact, their aromas go well together. Anyone familiar with the smell of palmarose oil will easily recognize its note in a substandard product.

Palmarose oil is widely used in cosmetics, it is a very popular fragrance for soap, shower gels and perfumery.

The high content of palmarosa oil in cosmetics has a lightening effect on the skin, as it slows down the activity of the tyrosinase enzyme involved in the production of the skin pigment melanin [1]. An excellent active additive in cosmetics against hyperpigmentation, suitable for mature skin to reduce the signs of aging and the visibility of wrinkles. Palmarosa oil will help even out skin color and regain brighter, evenly colored skin. This oil is perfect for acne-prone skin because it helps to normalize the skin’s microflora by regulating the amount of some pathogenic microbes [2].

The genus Lemongrasses is famous for its repellent properties, so it is not surprising that palmarose oil extracted from palmarosa has also received attention in research on its repellent properties. This oil has been found to be poisonous to some tick species [3] and to flour beetles, which spoils stored flour and cereal products [4].

In aromatherapy, palmarosis is a good antidepressant [5] that raises mood and suppresses stress. We recommend testing palmarose oil for home flavoring by adding it to your essential oil diffuser.
