We source only pure essential oils.

Just in time for the tykes to bring home those nasties they pick up at school!  From the Himalayan Mountains, this Palmarosa essential oil is a great source of anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal benefits.  These qualities are a great addition to your after school diffuser blends, soapless hand purifiers, and homemade soaps.

Aside from all of that, Palmarosa essential oil is an awesome addition to your skincare regimen.  From helping keep wounds clean to helping to keep faces clean and blemish-free, or as an addition to lotion or shampoo to help fight fungal issues . . . this oil is pretty awesome stuff . . . and it even smells good!  Like Manuka and Tea Tree, Palmarosa has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal qualities and can be used in many of the same applications . . . but it's my favorite scent of the three.  My preferred addition, but I do still rotate it with the others in the interest of not creating any habituation to it.  It's skin-balancing has been compared to that of Neroli and it's scent tends to work similar to that oil as well, lifting spirits, lessening stress, and creating balance.

Palmarosa essential oil may be beneficial in easing digestive issues and stomach cramps.

Due to it's geraniol content, this oil is helpful as a pest deterrent . . . but not with bees!  It may discourage flying insects for the most part, but will actually attract bees, so be aware of this.

Palmarosa may be helpful in keeping various glands happy.  For this reason, I like to add it to women's blends.

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in fractionated coconut oil.

Palmarosa Essential Oil Safety Info

According to Tisserand and Young, Palmarosa essential oil may cause skin sensitization, for this reason a max dilution of 6.5% is recommended. Do not use orally if you’re taking drugs metabolized by CYP2B6.  Palmarosa essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Palmarosa essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
