Geranium Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stalks of the plant Pelargonium odoratissimum (apple geranium). It has a strong smell with a floral aroma, and hints of mint and apple. The main feature of this oil is its ability to balance and uplift, and it is used to do both on the mind and body, to ease a host of ailments.
It brings about balance of the mind, relieving stress and anxiety. It is said to work on the adrenal cortex, which has a balancing effect on the hormone system. Its strong smell
chases away mosquitoes and pests.
In folklore these geraniums were believed to keep away spirits and so they were planted around houses as hedges. The plants originated from South Africa, Reunion, Madagascar, Egypt, and Morocco and were introduced to European countries in the 17th century. Although there are about 700 varieties of the plant, only 10 supply essential oil in viable quantities. The varieties planted in gardens usually produce too little oil to use for extraction.
Blends well with bergamot, lime, citronella, grapefruit, orange, neroli and petitgrain.
Although essential oils are 100% natural, some care always needs to be taken when using them. While most people have no adverse effects to using essential oils, some people are allergic to certain oils and some should not be used around pets. Its important to always do some research before using essential oils for the first time. Whilst essential oils can be used in healing and are so beneficial to well-being, you should always consult your GP if you are treating ailments. Usual warnings still apply. Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not use internally. Dilute before usage on the skin. Avoid eyes. If the oil causes irritation, discontinue use immediately.
