Palmarosa (Graminaceae family) is a large herbaceous plant from the tropical regions that consists that has drooping leaves and red plume-like flowers resembling geraniums. This plant, native to India, is also cultivated in South America, Indonesia and Africa. Its rose- and geranium-like fragrance and its geranium-like flower gave it the nickname "Indian Geranium".
In perfumery, like Pelargonium (Geranium Rosa), Palmarosa has long been used to dilute Rose Essential Oil, which was too costly.
Today, the interest the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries have taken in Palmarosa Essential Oil makes it one of the go-to essential oils.
For millennia, palmarosa has played an important role in Ayurvedic medicine. It is particularly renowned for its beneficial effects on the skin. Originally from India, it is often called "Indian geranium" because of its geraniol content. In China, it is part of the "Yin" foods because it has the "power to extinguish the fire of the body and mind".
The Kiotis laboratory has demonstrated, through scientific tests, the stimulating properties of Palmarosa Motia Essential Oil on the skin's microcirculation. It improves the bonds between cells
for enhanced skin hydration, nutrition and oxygenation while encouraging cleansing.
