Cymbopogon martini Oil is the volatile obtained by steam distillation
from the herb palmarosa, Cymbopogon martini, Gramineae.
Sweet, floral rosy geranium-like scent.

"Palmarosa is probably best known as a valuable skincare oil, hydrating and stimulating and helping to balance sebum production. Like Lavender and Neroli, Palmarosa stimulates cellular regeneration. Its use in skin treatments is enhanced by its antiseptic properties which make it useful for acne and many minor skin infections, also some forms of dermatitis." - from Aromatherapy an A - Z by Patricia Davis.
