Words by Mikaël


Close to the rose for its scent, palmarosa brings softness and tempers emotional excesses: anger, stress, resentment, guilt.

Freed, the mind becomes calm and relaxed in the face of the responsibilities it faces.

Regulates perspiration, and is anti-microbial

Origin of this essential oil
