Focus on Fragrance: Orange & Palmarosa 


Orange & Palmarosa Blend is sweet, calming and uplifting for happiness and warmth.

This incredible fragrance is actually my own personal favourite! If I had to choose just one to take to my desert island, this would be it! I find the fragrance sweet, fruity, joyful and very different to any other fragrance out there!

Palmarosa is a little known plant, we are always asked what it is, as many people we talk to at fairs and shows have never heard of it, as indeed we hadn’t before exploring essential oils for creating unique all-natural fragrance possibilities!

It is so called because Palmarosa oil has a rose-like smell, and because of this it has often been used to dilute the rarer and more expensive Rose Otto oil. It is a flowering grass, related to Citronella & Lemongrass! Native to India, it is a wild growing, yellow-green coloured grass, with very tall, slender stems, flowering tops and fragrant leaves. The grass is fully dried before the essential oil is extracted by steam distillation.

Palmarosa oil calms the mind, yet has an uplifting effect, for clearer thinking. It is used to counter physical and nervous exhaustion, stress-related problems and nervousness. It is a great aroma for soothing anxiety and can be an ally for anyone feeling down or overwhelmed or during challenging times! Palmarosa is an oil that inspires a compassionate, realistic outlook to help you get your feet back on the ground!

In our Orange & Palmarosa candles Emma has partnered the Palmarosa oil with Sweet Orange oil – which has a sweet, fresh and tangy fragrance, inducing feelings of wellbeing, happiness and warmth, and it also helps people to relax and even helps children to sleep at night!

Orange and Palmarosa fragrance is available in Emma’s Tumbler Candles, Tins and Wax tart melts.
