Geranium Essential Oil

Geranium essential oil smells lovely and is often used in place of rose oil which is much more expensive. The clean floral scent is enjoyed by people of all ages but it is also an effective antiseptic and antibacterial oil.  Because of those antiseptic and antibacterial properties, geranium is a great oil to use in your anti-infective blends as well as being an analgesic.

Geranium treats circulatory and blood disorders; helps chilblains disappear and alleviates the effects of frostbite. Geranium balances hormonal disorders and is essential in addressing female reproductive disorders including menstrual and menopausal problems and infertility.

Many natural body care products include geranium as it brings a radiant glow when used in skin care. Its astringent properties also make it a wonderful essential oil to use in your basic care kit. Geranium works on emotions because of its sedative properties so it can serve as a nerve tonic. I use geranium in many of my blends because one drop will often mask an aroma from a medicinal smelling essential oil and make it easier to use. It makes everything smell better so it is a great essential oil to use in a diffuser as a room fragrance that is also a mood enhancer.
