There are so many wonderful floral essential oils. They are favorites for natural perfumes, have wonderful skin benefits, and are often uplifting.
Many people already love Rose essential oil but do not know much about Palmarosa. They have similar benefits and uses, so let's talk about both of them in this post.
Rose Essential Oil Benefits
Rose can be used topically and aromatically. Rose has wonderful benefits for the skin and can help balance emotions. It is the "Queen of Oils." The aroma of Rose is uplifting and soothing. It can also promote an even skin tone and a healthy-looking complexion. Rose also comes in the convenient Touch form that has already been diluted with a carrier oil.

Palmarosa Essential Oil Benefits
Palmarosa essential oil is a limited oil that is only available for special promotions. So if you have a chance to get this oil, DO IT! It also has some wonderful natural skin benefits. Palmarosa also has a scent that is similar to Rose essential oil. Palmarosa is high in geraniol which is known for its skin benefits. It works well with Lemon Eucalyptus, Cedarwood, Deep Blue, Lavender, and Clary Sage.
Uses of Rose
Skin: You may ask how to use essential oils for skin. With Rose, you can apply it to areas of concern twice daily to help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. It helps balance the skin's moisture levels because of its astringent qualities. You can also enjoy its topical benefits by adding a drop or two to your moisturizer and applying it to your face, neck, and décolletage.
Skin Scrub: People often look for a skin scrub recipe. Here is a facial sugar scrub recipe you can try.
Personal Fragrance: Rose is a wonderful oil to use in place of store-bought perfumes. Just apply it to your neck and wrists. It is beautiful and romantic.
