Plant Description

Plant History

Native to India and Pakistan, this aromatic grass has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine for an array of skin issues and for nerve pain.  Though Palmarosa has been harvested since antiquity, it wasn’t until the beginning of the 20th century that this wonderful grass was commercially cultivated.  This is a plant that has always been wild gathered.  Still today a large portion of Palmarosa is wild gathered.
