Originating from South Africa and now grown primarily in Egypt, Madagascar and China, Geranium oil is distilled from its leaves and delivers a fruity rose like scent with a minty background facet. Popular in anti-inflammatory and cold remedies and a key ingredient in perfumes. Rose geranium essential oil is also used to promote emotional stability, alleviate pain, stimulate healing from burns and wounds, enhance mood, and reduce inflammation. It is also a cicatrizant, meaning it promotes healing. Used in a carrier oil, it may help to reduce the appearance of older scars, as well as helping to avoid new ones.

DIY Beauty: Geranium is a must-have for your diy beauty toolkit. Not only does Geranium Oil tone and protect your skin, it has potent cellular regeneration properties. It's also highly soothing when applied to your complexion and when used topically, its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties can purify and soothe your skin. It can effectively regulate sebum production too; whether your skin leans dry or oily, it helps to regulate the moisture and oil levels in your epidermis to leave your skin re-balanced and rejuvenated.
DIY Cleaning: Geranium oil naturally fights bacteria and infection. Couple that with the fragrance and you've got a handy ingredient for DIY household cleaning products. We might love the smell of geraniums, but most insects don't. The essential oil can be used to help repel everything from mosquitos to flies.
