Description and Uses:
Our Organic Egyptian Geranium essential oil has a wonderful green, flowery aroma and is both uplifting and calming. An astringent oil, geranium is excellent for all skin types, and is used in skin care products for both its fragrance and cleansing properties. It exerts a "balancing" effect on the skin. Geranium is also helpful for PMS and menopause and is said to help with cellulite. This oil is also helpful for treating eczema and psoriasis.
Emotionally, Geranium relaxes, restores and maintains stability of the emotions. It blends well with other floral oils and, when mixed with Lavender and Bergamot essential oils, produces a delightful room freshener.
Several geranium oils are available, and are usually distinguished by their country of origin, with each having slightly different percentages of chemical constituents. In addition to Organic Egyptian Geranium, we currently offer Geranium Bourbon, Geranium Egypt, Rose Geranium, and Chinese Geranium.
