Feature Friday: Palmarosa

By: Christina Smith, Certified Aromatherapist


This weeks featured oil is Palmarosa.

This grassy plant is related to Lemongrass and Citronella! Join me in taking a closer look at this under-rated plant and all the fantastic things it is capable of.

Palmarosa Information Chart

This is quickly becoming my go-to oil for my kids. I love using it along with Fir Needle to deal with all things respiratory. Since it’s KidSafe, it’s a must-have in my house. Here are a few ways I use Palmarosa:

  1. In a cough steam (click here) It’s great for coughs/colds
  2. Use in your diffuser, combine 3-4 drops Palmarosa with 2-3 drops Lemon or Orange Sweet for a refreshing and anti-germ blend.
  3. Create a personal inhaler (click here) I love this allergy blend
  4. Add a few drops, along with Helichrysum Italicum, Frankincense Carteri, and Lavender, to an unscented lotion. This will help repair dry skin! Using 1 ounce of unscented lotion add 3 drops Palmarosa, 1 drop each Helichrysum and Frankincense and 4 drops Lavender.

  1. Will definitely try the tips on using it for dry skin. Thank you for the information. We are always looking for dry skin solutions as my son has very dry skin.

  2. I grabbed some palmarosa the other day to use when my little girl gets sick. I’m excited that it’s kid safe and am hopeful that it’s effective for our coughs and colds!

  3. Hm, I didn’t realize it was related to citronella and lemongrass. How similar does it smell them? I don’t happen to like those particular oils, but everyone always says how great Palmarosa smells so I’m curious.

  4. Any lotion that doesn’t already have a scent is suitable. I’m sure you can find one at your local pharmacy or grocery store.
    There are also many good tutorials on creating your own lotion.
