Palmarosa is a grass whose botanical name is Cymbopogon martini. This oil smells like rose oil, which is how it got the name, palma-rosa. We get her essential oil by steam distillation of the dried grass that is harvested before flowering.
Palmarosa is an effective healer and strong cleanser. She is known to fight off Viral and Bacterial infections while also being a cytophylactic in nature, which promotes the growth of cells and the recycling of cellular matter. Palmarosa helps repair the damages done to the body by aging and aids us in repairing the damage from various wounds. Palmarosa oil also elevates the growth of the defensive cells of the body, use of her around the home is a great way to strengthen your immune system.
Metaphysically, Palmarosa honors us by teaching us to love ourselves with enthusiasm, when in her presence we find ourselves feeling gentle, loyal, and kind. Palmarosa holds space within our heart where love can flourish when we surrender our control. Being a grass, Palmarosa is a divine teacher that shows us no matter how much we cut and take from the earth mother nature continues to grow and give. Her endless unconditional love for us is to be worshipped and respected. Take a moment and thank the grass for providing us a place to lie down and the sustenance she gives all life on earth.
