An uplifting and floral scent, Geranium essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of the Pelargonium graveolens plant. It is known for its balancing properties – in terms of skin, hormones and mood.
Uses and benefits:
- Balancing skin – good to balance oil secretion – for both oily and more mature, drier skin types, to soothe congested and sensitive skin, including conditions such as eczema. Add a few drops to your favourite moisturiser.
- Respiratory complaints – can help ease a sore throat and clear mucus. Add a couple of drops to a bowl of hot steamy water and inhale.
- Stress – can help ease nervous tension and stress. Add a couple of drops to a diffuser and enjoy the relaxing, floral scent for 15 minutes.
- Emotional balance – can help bring balance to emotions. Useful in times of stress or with symptoms of PMT or menopause. Add a couple of drops to a shot glass of milk and add it to the bath. Lie back and relax for 20 minutes.
