Palmarosa, Organically Grown: India (Cymbopogon martini)
Palmarosa, also known as Indian Geranium, is a wild tropical grass native to India. It is apart of the Lemongrass family and historically it was used to treat fevers, rheumatism, nerve pains, some infectious diseases, and as an effective insect repellant for stored grains and beans. According to ancient folklore, Palmarosa was used for love spells to assist in finding love. It was also used to release emotional pain from passed relationships. Since the 18th century the grass has been distilled for the sweet, lemony, rosy scented oil. The oil is used in soaps, perfumes, cosmetics, household products, skin care products, traditional medicine, and for aromatherapy.
