  • In terms of traditional oriental medicine, Palmarosa oil is cool and moist in energy. Like both Rose and Geranium, Palmarosa clears heat and strengthens yin energy (the body's calming, moistening functions). It is beneficial to the skin partly because of these moisture balancing effects.
  • A cardiotonic and nervous system relaxant, Palmarosa essential oil helps to stabilize both the Heart and nervous system. Reinforcing the Heart yin and calming the Mind (Shen), it is indicted for palpations, restlessness, insomnia, and anxiety.


  • Conveying a sense of movement, containment, and contentment (purna), palmarosa essential oil encourages free–flowing adaptability and a sense of security and trust in the divine flow of life. Palmarosa essential oil (like rose oil) centers, supports, and softens the Heart and Mind (Shen), and similar to lemon essential oil, Palmarosa can assist in clearing away oppression.
  • Palmarosa essential oil is especially good for hot conditions where there is a tendency towards tension and exhaustion. Palmarosa is suited for individuals who suffer from nervousness, and insecurity, but who, in addition, cannot abide change, and the frequent absence of intimate loved ones. Palmarosa is appropriate as well for those who feel “clingy” jealous or possessive.
  • Having both calming and uplifting effects, it is a tonic for the heart and mind. It supports deep sleep, uplifts, calms and settles the mood, and provides comfort and support for feminine cycles.

  • Offering cell renewal benefits, Palmarosa essential oil nourishes and restores skin health and harmony. It is also known for its ability to rejuvenate tired, sore feet, so it makes a great foot soak.
