doTERRA’s Geranium Essential Oil – Rose Geranium

Uses of Geranium essential oil has quite a history dating back to ancient Egypt when Egyptians used this oil to beautify skin and for its internal health benefits. In the Victorian era, fresh geranium leaves were placed at formal dining tables as decorative pieces and to be consumed as a fresh sprig if desired. The edible leaves and flowers of the plant are sometimes used in desserts, cakes, jellies and teas.

doTERRA’s Geranium Essential Oil (Pelargonium graveolens) is Rose Geranium, which means the oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stems of the geranium plant to produce a gorgeous rose-scented oil.

Geranium is amazing for the skin and hair.
It promotes clear healthy skin and is popular as a wrinkle reducer. It is also an effective aid to help with superficial burns, wounds, ulcers and other skin problems.

Geranium also has a balancing effect on the nervous system and may offer relief for anxious feelings, stress and tension.

On an emotional level Geranium is a beautiful Heart oil and is perfect when you are feeling disheartened or disconnected from your core values. It is a gentle ‘heart restorer’ helping to restore confidence and trust and encourages, love, forgiveness and honesty.

Suggested Uses:

Inhale from bottle when needed or diffuse 3 or 4 drops in an ultra sonic diffuser.

Apply 1-2 drops over your heart area. Dilute with fractionated coconut oil to minimise any skin sensitivity. Add a drop to your moisturiser to help balance oil production or 1 or 2 drops to an affected area on the skin. Geranium is great for both dry and oily hair. Apply a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner bottle.

Combine Geranium with Ylang Ylang as a powerful combination to assist in accessing your ‘heart knowing’ and ‘gut intuition’ especially when the head brain is overly influencing your decision making.
