INFORMATION AND USES: Our beautiful Geranium oil is rich in citronellol and geraniol. Citronellol gives Geranium it’s floral / rosy odor. Case studies show that citronellol is responsible for potential antifungal and anti-inflammatory activity and promotes wound healing. Geraniol is a monoterpenol which is commonly known to be gentle on the skin, with a sweet rosy aroma. Our Geranium oil is the superior Rose geranium type which is gentle on the skin and commonly used in cosmetics. Geranium oil is a balanced oil which can be used on oily skin as well as dry skin. Geranium oil can be applied (in dilution) to cuts and rashes and burns.
