Palmarosa Essential Oil

Palmarosa

(Cymbopogon martini)

topical aromatic

Palmarosa grass is steam distilled to produce Palmarosa (Palm Rose) essential oil, which can be found in many perfumes, soaps and cosmetic products. Traditionally used as incense by the Ancient Egyptians, Palmarosa essential oil inspires connection, security, and release.

Palmarosa is a relative of Lemongrass and is an important ingredient in the following Young Living essential oil blends: Joy, Harmony, Clarity, and Forgiveness.  Its aroma is similar to Rose essential oil with a hint of sweetness,  and can be stimulating and soothing when diffused.  Because of the large number of rose petals needed for production, Rose oil can be pricey.  Consider using Palmarosa as a “poor man’s” Rose oil instead!

How to use: For aromatic or topical use.  Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water.  Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists.  Possible skin sensitivity.

  2. Diffuse around your home for a fresh, floral aroma that increases your  sense of security.
  3. Add to wrists and other pulse points to use as a personal perfume.
  4. Because the scent of Palmarosa oil is calming, it’s a great oil to diffuse when feeling stressed.

    skin.

Lemongrass essential oil

Lemongrass essential oil

(Cymbopogon flexuosus)

topical aromatic

Lemongrass essential oil is for use aromatically and topically while Lemongrass Vitality essential oil is a dietary oil and therefore can be ingested.

Originating in Southeast Asia, Lemongrass essential oil is distilled from the leaves and woody stalks of the lemongrass plant. With a subtle citrus-herb scent, Lemongrass oil offers a sophisticated and relaxing aroma that transforms your home’s environment.

Try diffusing Lemongrass for an aroma that can inspire a sense of clarity and relaxation for you and your whole family. Enhance that relaxing aroma by adding Lemongrass oil to your cleaning products, dishes, and laundry. Add 3–4 drops in a sink full of dishes, a load of laundry, or your all-purpose cleaner formula for an exotic, clean-smelling boost. Its relaxing aroma also makes it a great complement to post-workout massage.
