A member of the Pelargonium genus, geranium is grown for its beauty and is a staple of the perfume industry. While there are over 200 different varieties of Pelargonium flowers, only a few are used as essential oils. Uses of Geranium essential oil date back to ancient Egypt when Egyptians used Geranium oil to beautify skin and for other benefits. In the Victorian era, fresh geranium leaves were placed at formal dining tables as decorative pieces and to be consumed as a fresh sprig if desired; in fact, the edible leaves and flowers of the plant are often used in desserts, cakes, jellies, and teas. As an essential oil, Geranium has been used to promote the appearance of clear skin and healthy hair—making it ideal for skin and hair care products. The aroma helps create a calm, relaxing atmosphere.

Best Life Essential Oils (store manager) –
Geranium is absolutely fantastic for women, especially as we get into our later years and have to deal with hormone imbalances, wrinkles, varicose veins, and osteoporosis. Geranium is known as “poor man’s rose” because it has a light delicate smell, just like Rose. But don’t let that delicate smell fool you. It’s a powerhouse of an essential oil! A tiny bit goes a LONG way! 🙂
