Our certified organic (NOP) Egyptian Geranium is an exquisitely beautiful, soft yet full bodied Geranium essential oil that we highly recommend. Its aroma is very fresh, lightly floral, and somewhat penetrating with rich, leafy green/herbaceous body notes. Geranium essential oil is stored in specialized glands throughout the green parts of this vigorous perennial. It is important to note that the main constituents may vary considerably according to the terroir of the distilled plant material, a phenomenon known as chemotype.1The main constituents found in our exceptional Egyptian Geranium are citronellol, geraniol, linalool and iso-menthone.
Geranium essential oil is one that is prized for its beneficial effects for skincare, the female reproductive system, the nervous system, and the lymphatic/endocrine system. It is considered antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying, and is indicated for balancing both dry and oily skin and the production of the skin's sebum.
Geranium essential oil is also noted for its benefits in relaxing the body and relieving tension. A person’s anxiety, restlessness, irritability, driven behavior, and/or fear are all indications, on a fundamental level, of an imbalance of the Will, according to Gabriel Mojay in his book Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit. “A combination of geranium and orange oils is called for, to pacify the Will and ease frustration.”
