Three Reasons to Love Geraniol

by Andrea on August 30, 2010

geraniolPalmarosa is high in geraniol. The current batch we have contains 75%.

What’s so great about geraniol?

  1. It is cooling. Make a spray with an oil high in geraniol (try Palmarosa!) and spray it on the back of your neck on a hot summer day–the relief comes fast! You can also try a cool Palmarosa lotion after your shower.
  2. It is anti-fungal. I know fungus isn’t as much fun to talk about as Palmarosa lotion, but if you’re dealing with a fungus, Palmarosa is your oil. Not only will it help to calm the fungus, but it nourishes the skin around the fungus too.
  3. It is anti-inflammatory. We all know that when you reduce inflammation, you reduce pain. Enough said?

Do you have a favorite Palmarosa recipe you can share?
