HISTORY OF USE
Rose geranium essential oil is extracted from the plant Pelargonium graveolens of the Geraniaceae family and has a rosier smell than that of its cousin – Pelargonium odorantissimum, which is more the commonly known geranium essential oil and has a more wild “lemon-apple” smell.
If the oil is made from the leaves when they start turning yellow it has a stronger rose aroma then the younger, greener leaves.
The plants originated from South Africa as well as Reunion, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco and were introduced to European countries such as Italy, Spain and France in the 17th century.
There are about 700 different varieties of the plant, yet only 10 supply essential oil in viable quantities, since the normal garden geranium produce far too little oil for extraction.
It is a hairy perennial shrub, often used in hedgerows, and stands up to about one meter high (3 feet) with pointed leaves, serrated at the edges. It has pinkish-white flowers. In early times geraniums were planted around the house to help keep evil sprits at bay.
This crisp and rosy essential oil stimulates the adrenal cortex and helps to balance the nervous system, while lifting depression and relieving anxiety and has a regulatory effect on the hormonal system, clearing sluggish and oily skin, while assisting with healing.
The cooling, uplifting rose-scented geranium from South Africa has long been adored both for the delicious complexity of its bouquet and for the broad range of its applications. Boasting an emphatic, fragrant mix of rose and citrus, this variety of geranium is harvested from the leaves and flowers of the organic Pelargonium roseum plant.
Geranium’s versatility as an essential oil is well known amongst perfumers and aromatherapists alike. As a premier cooling oil, rose geranium assists in promoting vitality for the entire family, young and old. This uplifting oil has an overall balancing effect which extends to the skin, helping to stabilize both oily and dry skin and to keep skin supple. This oil is also widely cherished as a powerful assistant in promoting ease and grace during a woman’s monthly cycle.
Calming and grounding, rose geranium helps to reduce feelings of stress and worry. Its balancing effect on the body and mind makes rose geranium an excellent choice to uplift mood and to promote feelings of well being. Widely considered a tonic oil, or an oil that adds strength to the body, it’s stimulating properties lift the spirit and promote sensual feelings.
Diffuser: The scent of rose geranium is loved by many people. The fragrance is both sweetly floral as well as earthy and herbaceous. Whenever you would like to enhance feelings of positivity and calmness, add a few drops of rose geranium along with bergamot and lavender to your diffuser.
