Naturally balancing for the skin and emotions, palmarosa blends well with bergamot, cedarwood and geranium.

With a beautiful fresh, green and floral scent, this soothing organic palmarosa essential oil is steam distilled from the wild-growing grass near Tororo, in eastern Uganda. We’ve worked with a young farmer, Joel, to set up the distillery for aromatic crops grown on local farms, creating valuable employment.

Love this product and its versatility

A great oil

This citrusy rose smelling oil is great for so many things. I use it to help me relax when feeling stressed. I also find it great to massage my weary feet.

One of the oils you MUST have

Palmarosa is a must-have for skin, either for hydration or its anti-bacterial properties. The Neal's Yard oil is really potent and excellent quality. i wouldn't buy any other!

Unisex Oil

Suitable for troublesome skin conditions like acne or fungal conditions.. Not keen on the smell but it works on most skin irritations. I use it on my toes after showering to keep the nails fungal free and have also used it on bites or stings which is very soothing.
