Healing With Palmarosa - The place for profile layouts, flash generators, glitter graphics, backgrounds and codes
AAAhhhhh Wednesday again! It's so funny to me how this last year and this year are going by so fast. Maybe it's due to all the time I am spending online and at jewelers table that when I do look up, I realize a week has gone by...again.
Okay, so I am back in the present! Today we are going to check out Palmarosa oil.
This oil is refreshing and rejuvenating with a sweet floral fragrance and is highly prized for its skincare and mind-clarifying properties. Palmarosa is often used as a cheaper substitute for Rose oil.
So Keep reading if you are so inclined and feel free to leave  any comments, especially if you have any stories using these oils and how they have helped.
Healing With Palmarosa
Palmarosa comes from a tropical grass that is closely related to Lemongrass and Citronella. Originally from India, there are two varieties; Sofia and Motia, of which Sofia gives a finer aroma. To test the quality of Plamarosa, tap the bottle and if the rising bubbles quickly disappear, the oil is of a good quality.
Palmarosa's strengthening actions on the nervous system make it a useful oil for relieving stress and anxiety. Its use is believed to clarify the mind, enhance self-image and promote positive thought.
It is also a tonic for digestion and circulation. However, Palmarosa is most valued for its skincare properties. As an ingredient of soaps and cosmetics, it hydrates skin and stimulates skin growth.
Active Ingredients Of Palmarosa Oil
Esters~These may make up as much as 10% of the oil. Esters such as Geranyl Acetate prevent scarring and fight infections.
Alcohols~High concentrations of alcohols give Palmarosa its uplifting, stimulating and refreshing properties. The main alcohol, Geranol, gives it a powerful aroma and antiseptic action. It is also an ingredient of the closely related Lemongrass and Citronella oils.
Citronellal~This Aldehyde compound is present in low concentration but it is active in balancing and sedating the nervous system.
