Palmarosa Essential Oil, Cymbopogon martinii, offers a beautiful, floralesque scent with sweet, green and earthy undertones. If you close your eyes when you smell it, it almost as if its siblings, lemongrass and citronella, were combined together. When this beautiful scent surrounds you, you can’t help but smile and feel loved. Palmarosa empowers you to be grounded but at the same time, inspires you to feel free, especially free to be your authentic self without judgement. It is not as popular as geranium (often compared for its similar benefits), but it is just as much of an equal powerhouse. It provides comfort and stability, while nourishing your mind, heart and gut when you are exhausted. It inspires self-love, softens a hardened heart, calms anxiety and irritability when something doesn’t go your way.
When I first started out in aromatherapy, I had my 20-30 “go-to” essential oils that I used for most everything. Every month I would choose an essential oil to discover, connect with and add to my collection. I first chose Palmarosa because I thought it had a beautiful name. When I experienced its scent and emotional connection, I knew we would become fast friends. I have found it to be so pertinent when bringing balance and harmony to the mind, heart and gut. It helps me think with positive love, fills my heart with compassion and acceptance, and taps into my inner intuition. If you have Palmarosa in your aromatherapy box, grab it, open it up, close your eyes and take a whiff. Ahhh…feel the love it is giving you. If you don’t already have it, put it on your list of ones to purchase.
