Geranium’s special gifts for you…

There are 250 or so species of geranium, many of which are cultivated for ornamental purposes.  Of these, only two species are used for essential oil extraction – P. roseum and P. asperum. The sweet, slightly minty citrusy rose-like odour is intense and rich, and renders this essential oil with a feminine perfume tone, which is bright and uplifting.  Its uses are manifold.  From anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-microbial, to anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, and skin healing; this oil lifts and balances mood and emotion, combats infections, and is a valuable skin care ingredient that will balance dry and oily skin, improve tone and appearance, among many other valuable qualities.  Remember, always dilute essential oils in an emulsifying medium such as vegetable oil, unperfumed cream or lotion before applying to your skin.

 

Cajeput (Melaleuca cajeputi)
