**Special Characteristics:**
Palmarosa essential oil is a yellowish liquid. It has a sweet, fruity aroma with rose notes. Palmarosa essential oil dissolves easily in alcohol (1:2 ethanol 70%), vegetable oils, and other essential oils. It is almost insoluble in water. The main component of palmarosa essential oil is geraniol. Geranyl acetate, linalool, citral, limonene, and estragole are included in lower concentrations.

Palmarosa essential oil has several applications in the medical field. In Indian medicine, it has been used for a long time primarily for skincare. Recent studies have shown that palmarosa essential oil has a broad spectrum of antibacterial properties and is widely used in skin conditions such as acne or eczema, where it can be applied to the affected areas. Additionally, palmarosa essential oil is effective against fungi (urethritis, cystitis, vaginitis, tracheitis, salpingitis) and viruses (viral enteritis, bronchitis, myelitis, otitis, rhinopharyngitis, pharyngitis). In functional cardiac disorders, palmarosa essential oil, when placed on the sternum, has a cardiotonic effect.

In aromatherapy, palmarosa essential oil is used for its stimulating and strengthening characteristics. Especially in cases of fear, mental fatigue from stress, or nervousness, the use of aromatherapy lamps, massage, as bath oil, or in massages is recommended. Palmarosa essential oil also acts as an antidepressant when used in an aromatherapy lamp or in massage oil blends. Simultaneously, it has a revitalizing effect on the air.

**CAUTION: ALWAYS use diluted in a carrier oil or other solvent.**
