Palmarosa Essential Oil: This essential oil has a sweet floral aroma similar to rose or geranium. Historically it's been used for its benefits to the digestive tract and antibacterial properties. Traditionally it's used in perfume blends and insect repellants. We recommend using this essential oil in your favorite lotions, body butters, or soap recipes for its pleasantly rose-like aroma.
