  • Description

    Aroma 
    Egyptian Geranium has a slightly earthy apple aroma and Rose Geranium has a more rose-like aroma. 

    The plant 
    Geranium has about 700 different varieties, one of which is Pelargonium graveolens. The shrub originates from South Africa and is grown there and in areas of Europe. The different growing conditions result in a different aroma. 

    The extraction 
    The oil is extracted from the leaves and stalks by the process of steam distillation. Advice: be cautious of geranium that may be sold as rose geranium but actually comes from the Pelargonium odoratissimum plant. This oil gets it rose aroma from being distilled over rose petals. It is cheaper but it is a mock-rose geranium plant. Our Rose Geranium is the genuine plant form the Pelargonium graveolens. 

    Affects 
    Geranium is used to lift one’s spirits and reduce tension. It is commonly used in skincare to boost skin health and clear sluggish looking skin. Rose geranium is commonly used in perfumery and cosmetics, in particular is to enhance the smell of rose which is typically very expensive. 

    History 
    Ancient folklore encouraged people to plant geranium around their homes to keep evil spirits at bay. It wasn’t until the early 19th Century when the French began the commercial production of geranium oil, since then its popularity has spread far and wide. 

    Blending 
    Geranium blends well with bergamot, cedarwood, citronella, clary sage, jasmine, lavender, lime, neroli, petitgrain, rosemary and sandalwood.

    Suggested directions for use: 
    Add 6-10 drops in a bath. Mix 5 drops with water to use in an oil burner. Mix 6-10 drops with hot water as an inhalation. Mix 5 drops per 10ml of carrier oil for massage. 

    Precautions: 
    Do not take internally. Keep away from children and eyes. If pregnant or have a medical condition consult your practitioner before use. If oil gets into eyes splash out with water, seek medical advice if necessary. If unfamiliar with essential oils seek advice from a practitioner.
