Rose geranium essential oil (also referred to as simply "geranium essential oil") has aromatherapeutic benefits of relieving anxiety and fatigue – this fresh, green and rosy scent is calming and uplifting.
Geranium essential oil is an antioxidant, antiseptic, astringent, and anticellulite, which makes it a great addition to facial or body care products, as well as natural treatments for wounds, and yeast-related ailments like candida and athlete's foot. In skin and hair care products, geranium essential oil balances the oil production in your skin and scalp and is safe to use on all skin types.
If you are given a geranium plant, count yourself lucky! Geraniums symbolize true friendship, which is just one of the many reasons we love these pretty flowers. I was so honored to receive one as a birthday gift from Dave's mom earlier this year. ☺️
There are many varieties of geraniums, but the essential oil comes from the flowers and leaves of the Pelargonium graveolens plant (above).
