This is a drop dead GORGEOUS Rose Geranium from Madagascar. It has been years since we have been able to source a truly “rosy” Rose Geranium. Every time I talk to a supplier I ask for a sample of their Rose Geranium, and almost always disappointed. For years we have “settled.” Finally... BINGO... and this Pelargonium roseum just delighted us. We bought lots. I hope you love it as much as we do.
This rose-scented variety of the scented geranium is raised specifically because of the rose-like odor of its leaves. To me, it smells like a blend of a floral and herbal aroma. It’s not a substitute for Rose Otto, but it does have a more “rosy” aroma than most other Geraniums.
It is the oil I use in blends for menopausal difficulties. Geranium is known as "the balancer" of essential oils and Rose Geranium is reputed to assist with hormonal balance.
Both Geranium and Rose Geranium are effective antibacterials, earning a place in anti-acne blends and should be considered for other skin infections. They are wonderful oils for combination skin. I would also want to use them in any blend to assist with hormonally caused acne.
Like the other Geranium Essential Oils, it blends well with Clary Sage, Rose, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Lavender, and Chamomile, among others.
Geranium and Rose Geranium are available in two of our synergies made just for women. You can view the blends, Moondays and Passages, on our Blends for Women page.
A very different use: The Whole Dog Journal recommends the use of Rose Geranium as a tick repellant for your canine kids. (Please don't use any essential oils on cats!)
Safety: Robert Tisserand advises: low risk of skin sensitization, may interact with diabetic, antianxiety, opiod, analgesic, anticancer, HIV treatment and other medications as well as nicotine.
Rose Geranium Hydrosol is available on our Aromatherapy Hydrosols page.
