Wild in Winter: Intentionality with Palmarosa

The cold days of winter make our ocean swims colder. Our coffee seems hotter and our skin drier. The Wendy Christina Premium Skincare team loves chilly weather! To be wild in winter, we turn to the beautifully scented essential oil, Palmarosa. This is the season of bundling up, warm drinks, fireplaces and welcomed cuddles with loved ones. The late sunrises of winter inspire us to intentionally start our days in the first morning rays.

Awakenings of the body in the form of cold ocean swims, surfs, beach walks, grounding yoga or hitting the ski slopes all accompany our early morning reflections of the mind. So we encourage you, our lovely customers, to take advantage of these colder mornings and late sunrises. Wendy Christina Skincare is the nourishment for your skin. Mornings started off with gratitude, hope, and rejuvenation are the nourishment of our soul. We hope you enjoy the season.

Intentionality with Palmarosa

So why Palmarosa? During cold days, our skin needs protection from everyday elements. While we love winter, the cold air and lack of humidity often dries out skin leaving it dull and dehydrated. The chill in temperatures causes our natural occurring sebum levels to decrease. Sebum – in correct balance – protects our skin and locks moisture in. Without the nourishment it needs, skin is open to irritants and may become itchy due to dryness. Skin often develops minor bacterial infections due to the loss of protective layer and weakness in the skin barrier. Common problems from poorly nourished skin in winter include: itchy dry skin, cracked lips, exacerbation of pre-existing inflammatory skin diseases such as rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.

Proper care is a necessity for mature or dry skin, especially during winter. This is why our highlighted essential oil ingredient of the week is Palmarosa.

Wild in Winter with Palmarosa

Palmarosa (also known as Rose Geranium) comes from a grass species native to India. The properties of Palmarosa include antiseptic, bactericide, digestive, hydrating and anti-fungal. When our skin is vulnerable in winter, using Palmarosa is the ideal tonic to protect against harmful microorganisms. This killer essential oil stimulates the regeneration of cells resulting in stronger skin on the cellular level and increased healing of scars and infections. The perfect ingredient for going wild in winter, Palmarosa is also hydrating to the skin and balances the levels of sebum.

Palmarosa is ideal for all skincare types, particularly problematic and sensitive skin. It aids conditions such as acne, dermatitis, minor skin infections, malnourished and dry skin. Our recommended winter products containing Palmarosa are:


This gentle exfoliation for the face is gently detoxifying and nourishing to the skin. Sweet almond, camellia and jojoba oils are rich in omega fatty acids which can aid to nourish and assist healthy cell growth, while white willow bark and lavender oil can work to draw out impurities from the pores. Rose Geranium provides hydration and added antiseptic protection.

Today we cerebrate a herb that has been known for its healing properties for centuries:


While Chamomile may be “outdated” meaning it is not chatted about like the “hot”, “new”, or “trendy” skincare elements out there today, do not be fooled into believing it has lost any capacity of effectivity. Chamomile has stood the test of time and still remains known for its therapeutic properties. The most potent aspect of chamomile is that it is a relaxant. This effect corrects many different ailments.

For instance, chamomile is well known as a before bed tea to aid those in their sleep. It is a potent remedy for insomnia. In addition chamomile relieves migraines, headaches, menstrual pain, PMS, stomach pain, digestive issues, colic, even being used to relieve asthma attacks. Chamomile also prevents the growth of disease causing microorganisms and kills bacteria.

Perhaps old-fashioned, yet still a powerful therapeutic substance, chamomile applies to your skincare routine as well.

Chamomile relieves stress from the skin, reduces inflammation, and calms burns and irritations. It features in many of the Wendy Christina ranges because of its anti-inflammatory properties that soothe as well as its role to increase moisture and elasticity in the skin.

Green tea and Hyaluronic Acid Eye Treatment is an essential for the delicate skin around the eye. The skin around the eye area is very thin and sensitive, often the place that is first to be damaged without adequate protection and nurturing.

Hyaluronic Acid rapidly brings hydration into this area smoothing wrinkles while Green Tea, Aloe Vera, and Pomegranate implant high levels of antioxidant rich vitamin C for collagen synthesis and relieve damage caused by free-radicals. As well as brightening the under eye area.

Anti-inflammation, calming, and improved texture are attributed to the Roman Chamomile that plays an important role in this product.
