Geranium is a perennial shrub, and will stand up to about one meter high (3 feet) with pointed leaves, serrated at the edges and with flowers that range from red to a pinkish white. Geranium plants originated in South Africa, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco and were introduced to European countries in the 17th century. Primarily, it was used by the Egyptians for promoting beautiful and radiant skin. There are over 200 species of geranium, of which some are scented and some not. The petals are used in gourmet jellies and confections, and the oil is widely used in scented topical applications.

Geranium oil is extracted through steam distillation of stems and leaves. The main constituents  include alpha pinene, citronellol, limonene, linalool, myrcene, menthone, geranyl acetate. It’s used as a holistic treatment to improve your physical, mental and emotional health, and is also used to treat acne, reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety and balance hormones. Geranium oil is nontoxic, nonirritant and generally non-sensitizing. Therapeutic properties include antidepressant, antiseptic and cell rejuvenation.  Geranium oil may be the best oil for dermatological problems such as oily or congested skin, eczema, and dermatitis.This sweet-smelling oil can improve your mood, combat fatigue and promote emotional wellbeing
