Geranium Essential Oil is highly valued and used in premium brands of perfumery and cosmetics. Pelargonium graveolens [Family: Geraniaceae] is native of eastern part of the Mediterranean region, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. But this small shrub also grows widely on Reunion island, France; Spain; Italy; Morocco; Egypt and China. China is currently the largest producer of Geranium Essential Oil. The harvest period extends from march to September in China, while in Egypt, the leaves are cropped in June and July.
Our sumptuous Bourbon Geranium Oil is a superior choice for a wide range of body care and aromatherapy uses; it is also an excellent perfumery ingredient. Geranium Essential Oil is also deeply skin nourishing and can help minimize the presence of unwanted fungal activity. Within personal care applications, Pelargonium Essential Oil can help soothe and provide support to problematic, wounded and mature skin. Along with helping to improve circulation, it is also useful for managing minor pain and inflammation as well as for helping ease unwanted muscle spasms. Geranium Oil blends well with other essential oils within the floral, citrus and wood families.
Emotionally and energetically, Geranium Essential Oil is uplifting and stabilizing. This is a lovely essential oil to use when looking to help manage situational anxiety and depression. In his book Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit, Gabriel Mojay states that Geranium Essential Oil can assist with an
imbalance of the will that manifests as feelings of stress, restlessness, irritability, anxiety and fear.
