Comforting Geranium

Comforting Geranium would be my essential oil of choice for any transitions that you may be going through by helping to focus your scattered thoughts and to calm your anxious heart.

Geranium, (Latin name Pelargonium Graveolens) has a"leafy-rosy" scent, and that for me it has an uplifting, balancing effect on my nervous system. With its aromatic leaves and flowers, Geranium is a perennial, shrubby plant that originated in South Africa. In the 17th century, it was introduced into Europe, where it hybridized. Around 1880, Geranium plantations were planted on Reunion Island, (east of Madagascar, in the Indian Ocean). Geranium is grown in China, Russia, Italy, Spain and South America. (Geranium essential oil from Reunion Island and Egypt are my favorites.) Geranium may be helpful for:

  • hormonal tension & irritability,

  • Feelings of stress and anxiety

  • headaches

  • bruises

  • minor burns

  • skincare

Use caution when using Geranium essential oil in pregnancy. May irritate sensitive skin. Always dilute before topical use.
