What does Essential Oil of Palmarosa do?
Palmarosa contains the chemical compound geraniol, and is valued for its scent as well as for a number of traditional medicinal and household uses. Palmarosa oil has been shown to be an effective insect repellent when applied to stored grain and beans, an antihelmintic, and an antifungal and mosquito repellent.
Palmarosa oil has a scent similar to roses and is often added to well-known soaps and cosmetics.
While the plant oil has many therapeutic uses, it is most frequently used for skin care because of its moisturizing properties. Palmarosa oil is used to treat skin problems like eczema and psoriasis, as well as boils, abscesses and acne, as well. Animals may also benefit from this gentle plant oil. Specifically, dog skin disorders and horse skin fungus and dermatitis are just some animal skin conditions Palmarosa oil can help treat.
