Palmarosa Palmarosa also known as Cymbopogon martini is a useful source of essential oil in aromatherapy due to some medicinal properties. It can be used in the treatment of fatigue, depression, stress, acne, wrinkles, humectants, and so many others. Antifungal and anti-aflatoxigenic activities In a study to evaluate the antifungal and anti-flatoxigenic activities of Cymbopogon martini essential oils were carried on the toxigenic strains of Aspergillus species. The plant material was hydrodistilled for 4-5 h in Clevenger apparatus concentrations of the essential oil. the essentials oils of Cymbopogon martini demonstrated significant antiaflatoxigenic potency by totally inhibiting toxin production from A. niger and A. flavus Prevent toxicity of the liver cells In a study that evaluate the effects of the inhalation of Cymbopogon martinii essential oil (EO) and geraniol on Wistar rats were evaluated for biochemical parameters and hepatic oxidative stress. The wistar rats were divided into three groups. The essential oil of C. martini can be used to prevent the toxicity in the liver. Antioxidant activity In a study designed to evaluate the antioxidant activity and effect of Cymbopogon martinii leaves on the activity of monoamine oxidase and kinetics of enzyme inhibition. Ethanol extract of C. martinii and rat brain mitochondrial monoamine oxidase preparation were used to study the kinetics of enzyme inhibition using double reciprocal Lineweaver–Burk plot. The study demonstrated that C. martini can be considered as a possible source of MAO inhibitor used in the treatment of depression and other neurological disorders. Effects of acne A study was carried out to evaluate the impact of C. martini EO and its major compound, geraniol, on C. acnes. The essentials oils of C. martini demonstrated the minimum inhibitory concentration against C. acnes strains, phenotypic changes and responses of the proteome ranging from 0.7 to 1.6 mg/ml.
