A product of a sweet smelling tropical grass, Palma Rosa Oil smells like a blend of Rose and Geranium Oil. I have seen it offered as “Rose Geranium” so check the Latin name on any Rose Geranium you buy, it may well be Palma Rosa.
Palma Rosa Essential Oil is very effective in blends for treating various skin conditions as it helps balance production of sebum, thus being useful for both extremely dry and oily skin. A strongly anti-infectious oil, as well as being antifungal, Palma Rosa may be useful in treating a range of skin infections. I like to add it to any anti-fungal blend.
It blends beautifully with geranium, emphasizes the scent of rose in any blend, works well with lavender. Emotionally, it is said to aid in the release of anger and grief.
I have occasionally found it useful in a PMS blend.
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
