A broad spectrum of action, with a lovely & fresh aroma
Palmarosa is an important oil to have on hand when fighting or recovering from an illness; it is antibacterial, antiviral and helps to reduce fever. Diffuse it in your environment or use in a head compress (add a few drops to warm water to soak a washcloth).
Palmarosa also has a strong anti-fungal action, with an aroma much softer than others in this category. This makes Palmarosa ideal for many of your household needs, for foot treatments and deodorizing room diffusion. For these purposes, it works best in combination with Geranium Rose (and/or Thyme Linalol). To combat musky or moldy carpets, make this DIY Carpet Powder; spread it over the area, then vacuum as normal.
