Palmarosa Essential Oils

Marginally differing in their aroma, palma rosa grass (from which palmarosa essential oils are derived) come in a couple of varieties: Sofia and Motia. The grasses are harvested previous to flowering, dried, and then the essential oils are produced through steam distillation. They end up having a thin consistency with an aroma described as lemony, rosy, floral, and sweet. Less expensive than rose oil, palmarosa is sometimes used in its place. Palmarosa essential oils blend well with a number of others including the following: ylang-ylang, lime, rosemary, bergamot, geranium, and lavender.
