Palmarosa essential oil, sometimes known as 'Indian Geranium Oil' is a lovely, holistic oil to use in aromatherapy treatments - I have started using it more and more for several reasons.......
It is great for sore and tired muscles and helps relax nerves. It is valuable for treating the symptoms of stress, such as fatigue and anxiety, and it also uplifts and invigorates the spirit.
It is fabulous for your skin......it has been called Mother Nature's moisturiser..... and I love the gorgeous smell.
Palmarosa is an aromatic grass found growing wild throughout India, and has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years there. In Ayurvedic medicine it is known as ‘Rohisha’ and the grass is often used as a poultice to help relieve ailments such as rheumatism, sciatica and lumbago.
