Aromatically, Palmarosa Essential Oil has a slight similarity to Geranium Essential Oil and can sometimes be used as an aromatic substitute. In skin care, Palmarosa Essential Oil can be helpful for balancing dry, oily and combination skin types. A little goes a long way in skin care applications.
For emotional applications, Palmarosa Essential Oil can be helpful during times of anxiety and can be comforting and help soothe grief, emotional wounds and help diminish anger. Robbie Zeck beautifully explains that Palmarosa Essential Oil "...opens the doorway of the heart to bring love and forgiveness to traumatic events." [Robbi Zeck, ND, The Blossoming Heart: Aromatherapy for Healing and Transformation (Victoria, Australia: Aroma Tours, 2008), 102.]
In general terms, Palmarosa Essential Oil contains approximately 70-80% monoterpenes, 10-15% esters and around 5% aldehydes. It does not contain the abundance of citral (aldehyde) that Lemongrass Essential Oil and Citronella Essential Oil possesses.
As with Lemongrass and Citronella, Palmarosa is a grass that belongs to the Gramineae/Poaceae family. However, their properties and safety recommendations are different, so it's important not to assume that these three oils can be treated identically.
