Pelargonium graveolens - origin Egypt, leaf, steam distilled

Geranium is a widely useful oil that straddles floral and citrus aspects.  This oil offers a balanced aroma with plenty of sweetness and a hint of tartness and herbaceousness laid over the top.

Geranium is one of the more affordable floral type oils and will complement many of your other oils in blends.  It is excellent for topical application on a wide variety of skin types and has toning, firming, balancing properties.  It is also helpful to stimulate circulation and quell inflammation.

Geraniol and citronellol dominate the dozens of chemical constituents found in this oil.

Egyptian Geranium essential oil is nontoxic, non-irritant, and generally non-sensitizing.  Contact dermatitis can be possible in very sensitive individuals.

Please see the "Ingredients" tab for the GC/MS test results for this essential oil.

Blending: This oil is considered a middle note.  Geranium blends well with Lavender, Rose, Neroli, Jasmine and other floral oils.  It also blends seamlessly with citrus oils like Bergamot, Mandarin, and Grapefruit.  Patchouli, Vetiver, and Labdanum all work as base/fixative notes depending on the other aspects of the blend. 

Aromatherapy uses: Nervous tension and stress, PMS and hormone imbalance, poor circulation and swelling, acne, burns, skin congestion, cuts, eczema, oily skin, wounds, and insect repellant
