Geranium essential oil is a plant that is steam distilled to produce a light green oil. Some of its countries of origin include Algeria, Egypt and Morocco. Among its active components are geraniol and citronellol (usually making up at least 50% of the oil’s yield).

Geranium is a wonderful essential oil for skincare, with its antiseptic, astringent, sebum balancing properties and cell regenerating capabilities. It is effective for most skin types, from mature, devitalized skins to dermatitis and acneic conditions. It can be blended into skin creams or cleansers for daily use. It may be wise to note that some sensitive individuals may not be able to use this oil as they may find it to be a bit irritating.

Geranium essential oil also has the reputation of being an antidepressant, making it a great oil to diffuse or use in a room spray during “down” times or to help combat the “February Blahs”. Geranium essential oil is also an astringent and hemostatic (which means it helps stop bleeding) making it excellent for treating injuries and promote faster healing of wounds.

Geranium essential oil stimulates the adrenal cortex, which is primarily responsible for secreting hormones, which help to balance the production of hormones secreted by other organs (including male and female sex hormones). This is why geranium essential oil is very often recommended for PMS and menopausal problems (to help balance the production of estrogen and progesterone produced by the body). As a diuretic and lymph system stimulant, geranium is used in the treatment of cellulite and fluid retention, and it is also used as an insect repellant! (Especially helpful when combined with Citronella and Bergamot.)
