Palmarosa Essential Oil Aromatherapy 10ml
Palmarosa oil's health benefits are also often attributed to its antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. In one study that tested the antibacterial activity of four types of essential oils — palmarosa, evening primrose, lavender, and tuberose – researchers found that palmarosa essential oil was the most effective against gram-positive Escherichia coli and gram-negative Staphylococcus aureus species of bacteria.
Other research showed the essential oil's efficacy against a strain of yeast called Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It was suggested that this effect was due to palmarosa's geraniol content. It was also found that exposure to the oil led to changes in the composition of the yeast cell membrane, with increased saturated fat and reduced unsaturated fat.
Palmarosa oil can also serve as an antiviral agent, especially when blended with other virus-fighting oils like anise star oil or ravensara oil.The oil can also protect wounds from infection with its function as an antiseptic. When taken internally, palmarosa oil can suppress bacterial growth in your urinary tract.
