Geranium essential oil benefits

Let the “flower of consistency” guide you to long-lasting positivity.

Used since the Ancient Egyptian Times, Geranium essential oil has carved a special place in our hearts. Nicknamed the “flower of consistency”, this essential oil is known for its ability to lift the mood, bring joy and happiness and balance the mind.

While Geranium is commonly found in our everyday lives, there are over 700 varieties of Geranium but only ten of these can be used to create Geranium essential oil. However, it is not just the flower that holds the powerful benefits of the volatile oil. The concentrated liquid is obtained through steam distillation of the entire flower plant from flower to roots. 

Mild, floral and sweet, the aroma of Geranium is sometimes compared to the scent of roses.
