PALMAROSA OIL (Cymbopogan martinii)

Palmarosa also called Rosha Grass and Indian Geranium (Cymbopogon martinii) is another species used in the perfume industry. It is a perennial clumping grass which grows to 150 cm with finer leaves and has a smaller bulbous base than the species above. The leaves and flower tops contain a sweet smelling oil which is used for the production of geraniol. It is also distilled into palmarosa oil and used in aromatherapy for its calming effect to help relieve nervous tension and stress.

The oil is extracted from this 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.

It is extracted from the dried grass, harvested before it flowers, by steam distillation and yields about 1 - 1.5 % essential oil.

The main chemical components of palmarosa oil are myrcene, linalool, geraniol, geranyl acetate, dipentene and limonene

Oil is a source of high-grade geraniol, used in perfumery, cosmetic, and flavouring industry A relative of vetiver and lemongrass, and used in its native land as a protection against fevers, this under-rated remedy will come to the rescue in times of influenza and high temperature, when stronger oils might be too stimulating. Combining a delightful fragrance with powerful healing properties, it is a gentle tonic for the entire system. In an aerosol in summer it will keep the atmosphere light and clean, and in winter provide a contrast to more stimulating oils, such as eucalyptus or lemon. Palmarosa has many uses in sickness and skin care, and a fragrance that can be fun to work with

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. We find the sofia chemotype to be far more active and pleasant smelling - and for this reason the oil sold by us is from this chemotype.

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.
