Plant Information

Geraniums pink flowers are powerful with their citrus-like, sweet, scent that is very strong and known to overpower blends. It is a very feminine aroma, aiding in female issues like cramps, infertility, and menopausal symptoms. Unlike rose oil, which is expensive, Geranium is a high yield oil and is commonly used in aromatherapy. Geranium is said to soothe irritable feelings, lift the spirits, and be a pick-me-up when feeling down. Geranium is said to work on the lymphatic system and may relax the whole body in just a whiff. Either inhaling or absorbing the oil through the skin, essential oils transmit messages right to the brain, by-passing the subconscious mind, some say. Essential oils are said to have biological factors that affect help with stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, and immune function. Geranium oil is thought to enhance health and may have something to do with citronellol and geraniol, its main components.
