Palmarosa Essential Oil

Often a component in "rose" oils, palmarosa is a trickster and so although it is Venus, it has more than a little Mercury to it. On top it smells smooth and gentle, but underneath you can detect a different, busier nature. It also has the Mercury characteristic of smoothing over and blending together differences, making it good in combination with other scents. Cunningham includes it in a recipe for a Water oil, which is an interesting take on its smooth fragrance. It is sometimes known as sweet cane and included in kyphi recipes, so try it in perfume oils with an Egyptian slant. It's also a component of Van Van Oil. This fragrance is great for focusing before a ritual and for love magick. Steam-distilled from Cymbopogon martinii in Nepal. Top

Combining With Other Essential Oils

The rosy fragrance of palmarosa blends well with the natural scents of amyris, black pepper, cananga, cassia, cedar,  chamomile, citronella, clove bud, frankincense, geranium, guaiacwood, jasmine, lavender, lemongrass (its sister), mandarin, neroli, oakmoss, patchouli, petitgrain, rose, rosewood, and sandalwood. Use vitamin E or other oxidants with this oil to help prevent any problems with sensitization. Top
