This is a 100% pure essential oil of Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens). The plants have been lovingly grown, handpicked and steam-distilled in our herb gardens at the base of Mt Kenya. It has a sweet rose-like and flowery fragrance due to its high content of citronellol and geraniol.
Benefits: The oil is known to be antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic; astringent, promotes the healing of wounds, is deodorant, fungicidal and a tonic. The French medicinal community use it to treat diabetes, diarrhoea and gallbladder problems, gastric ulcers and liver problems, and the Chinese believe that it can promote the expulsion of toxins from the body.
Tips for Blending: The oil blends well with lavender, patchouli; clove, rose; orange blossom, bergamot, sweet orange and petitgrain.
Contraindications and Use: Do not apply to the skin directly. Dilute the oil in a carrier oil such as sunflower or moringa, at a maximum of 5%. You can also dilute it in our hydrosols, or any water and use as room sprays. Little amounts can also be used in diffusers to create a calming environment. Use it to make your home cosmetic products. Do not use while under medication for diabetes, as it has been shown to interact with the drugs. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight in the original container. Use within 36 months.
