The sweet smelling rosy oil is also known as Indian Geranium, as the oil has a very similar scent to geranium.

Palmarosa essential oil contains high amounts of geraniol, which is a natural bactericide and antiseptic. Palmarosa essential oil is commonly used for hydrating the skin. Just a few drops may be applied to any skincare regimen to help with wrinkles, acne, acne scars, and broken veins. Palmarosa essential oil is known to have effective benefits on the digestive system.
