Country of Origin: Egypt.
Plant Family: Geraniaceae.
Method of Extraction: The oil is steam distilled from from the plant's leaves.
It is deodorising, cleansing and uplifting as well as having quite good insect-repellent properties.
Try blending 1 drop of Geranium with 2 drops of Lavender and 2 drops of Mandarin in a teaspoon of Sweet Almond oil for use as a relaxing, refreshing bath or massage oil.
Alternatively, blend the same oils with two teaspoons of Peach Kernel oil for a special hydrating body moisturiser with a delicious aroma. In a diffuser or burner, Geranium blends very well with the citrus oils.
After a long haul flight, try blending together 2 drops of Geranium, 1 Drop each of Juniper and Lavender in 10 ml of Peach Kernel; massage in to the ankles to encourage elimination.
