Often used in conjunction with other oils to augment and accentuate a calming blend, rose geranium essential oil is most well-known for its distinct astringent, hemostatic, deodorant and anti-depressant qualities. In addition, rose geranium possesses the ability to generate relaxation, calm and balance in the mind.
Origin and Composition
Perhaps used earliest by Egyptians, it is often mistaken for the flower rose. Originating in Africa, rose geranium has a mostly clear, but slightly greenish tint with a watery consistency and is distilled using steam, primarily from the stems and leaves of this woody shrub. With a subtly sweet, crisp and rosy smell, the oil has a soothing aroma that carries a slightly earthy or minty undertone.
Rose geranium essential oil has a marked effect as a diuretic, anti-inflammatory and to cicatrize, or help promote healing, particularly of scars and wounds. Rose geranium essential oil also promotes healthy skin, helps relieve depression and anxiety and uplifts the spirit to reduce stress.
For aromatherapy use. Also as a mist to deodorize or promote sedation. As a shampoo, in a lotion or in the bath to induce relaxation.
Rose geranium essential oil is great when combined with cedarwood, citronella, grapefruit, lavender, sweet orange and rosemary.
I love this oil. The scent is so great. I use it in my anti-age face serum and I love it. This is the second time I purchased this oil and bought a bigger bottle this time.
I love this brand for aromatherapy
I use Rose Geranium to keep the Ticks off my dogs. It works wonders without poisoning the animal even in the deepest woods and you can pet the dogs without washing your hands and they smell great. I add Lavender and Eucalyptus to control Fleas and Mosuito's. 20 drops of essential oil to a pint of water misted lightly daily.
