Palmarosa oil is extracted from Cymbopogon martini also known as Cymbopogon martinii var. Martinii of the Gramineae family and is also known as East Indian and Turkish geranium, as well as Indian rosha and motia. Al oil is fast becoming a firm favorite in essential oil therapy and aromatherapy, as it has excellent skin care properties and is also used to relieve stiff and sore muscles, while calming the mind and uplifting and invigorating the spirits and clearing muddled thinking.
Oil properties: Palmarosa oil has a sweet floral, with a hint of rose smell and is pale yellow in color with a nearly watery viscosity. It is a wild growing, herbaceous green and straw-colored grass, with long slender stems, terminal flowering tops and fragrant grassy leaves. It is harvested before the flowers appear and the highest yield is obtained when the grass is fully dried - about one week after it has been cut. There are two varieties of grass from which the oil can be extracted - motia and sofia. Because palmarosa oil has a rose-like smell, it is often used by unscrupulous essential oil wholesalers and retailers to adulterate rose essential oil.
Please note - we DO NOT adulterate any oils - we only supply pure 100% natural essential oil. It is often used as an ingredient of soaps, perfumes and cosmetics, and is also used in the flavoring of tobacco.
Extraction: Palmarosa oil is extracted from the dried grass harvested before it flowers by steam distillation. The yield is 1 - 1.5 %.
