Geranium Essential Oil
Tracing its roots back to the great civilisation of Eygpt, trailing to Europe in the 17th Century, the ‘rose-like’ geranium has been greatly treasured as a beauty miracle, restoring & revitalising the vitals while calming & grounding the self.
The abundance of uses & its wondrous attributes make it a valued herb – an effective antiseptic warding off infections & skin conditions, boosting immunity & improving circulation, lending the hair and skin an illuminating radiance, also exceptionally beneficial in aiding women’s health & maintaining hormonal balances.
A fast growing & spreading herb native to South Africa, one with slightly edgy leaves adorned by small, rose-pink blooms – the essential oil extracted by means of steam distillation of the leaves stalks and flowers, practically the entire plant except the roots.
