Love it!
This is a lovely floral oil. The best way to describe it is, it smells like geranium essential oil without the stink. (If you've smelled geranium up close, you know what I'm referring to! A little goes a long way.) Palmarosa is more fresh and delicate. A nice addition to my floral oils.

Has an aroma like heaven... awesome
This is absolutely one of the best oils around!! Use it regularly. Most all RM oils are great, but Palmarosa is super great!

Love it! Have used only a few of the oils ordered.
Question: Do you make a "thieves" oil - similar to the one by Young Living? Or could I make my own using a combo of your oils? You think? Thanks for the fine service!

I add Palmarosa (and Sandalwood) to aloe and use it twice a day on my face. It stimulates the skin and leaves it glowing. It's a great skincare product. I've started mixing a drop of Palmarosa with FCO and using it on my hands.

Palmarosa Oil
This is one of the most enjoyable oils ever, great quality!!
May 2, 2016
Always pleased
I have very dry hair, and Palmarosa in a carrier (usually coconut oil) makes a wonderful treatment. Am using it on my nails as well, after anything strenuous (gardening, dish washing), especially if I've neglected to wear gloves.

I wanted a floral scent without paying an arm and a leg for rose EO. I don't have many floral scents in my collection. I've smelled Palmarosa EO blends from other brands in-person and I like the scent.

A friend did a Zyto Compass scan on me and it recommended Palmarosa.
Laura E on May 4, 2017
I've heard it's good in a perfume blend.
Jennifer C on May 3, 2017
I purchased this oil to try while it was on sale because I read that it's good for the face and wrinkles. I have no opinion yet if it works or not. I've tried it undiluted, which has a strong burning sensation, so I added it to my homemade face cream. I don't care for the strong smell, but I do like the hint of lemon it has.
