Geranium is fresh and rosy with herbaceous, green and minty notes. It was used traditionally to support the nervous system and restore balance to the body. It can improve the appearance of skin and encourages the healing of wounds. It is a great oil to use on the skin to help with acne, eczema and dermatitis as it balances the production of sebum, benefiting both dry and oily skin. It also has a stimulating effect on the lymphatic system which can help to reduce fluid retention. Emotionally, it helps to calm nerves and reduce feelings of stress.
Geranium has been referred to as a “women’s oil” because it can help to balance hormones, reducing symptoms of PMS, mood swings and menopause.
