Focus on Fragrance: Orange & Palmarosa
Orange & Palmarosa Blend is sweet, calming and uplifting for happiness and warmth.
My own personal favourite! 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 wild growing, yellow-green coloured grass, with long 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.
In our Orange & Palmarosa candles we’ve teamed this 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.
