Hozzel on Rose Geranium Essential Oil: "Geranium's vital, sensual presence
is not subtle, but direct & unavoidable, making it one of the oils of choice for aphrodisiac qualities.
(Geranium Essential Oil) inspires natural beauty & enjoyment, uplifts instantly & "tonifies" the
mind & intellect
in a powerful, nearly demanding attitude. Mobilizing hidden creative & emotional reserves, helping us to
rise to our own earthly & spiritual identify. A fiery beauty for the spells of all worlds."
There are in fact two species of Pelargonium distilled to essential oil - this 'odorantissium' produces Rose Geranium oil, high in geraniol with a more 'rose-like' aroma. The 'graveolens' species produces an oil with a higher citronellol content, with a correspondingly more citrus-like aroma. It is noted to blend well with many other essential oils, particularly Lavender, French and other florals; it may in-fact be the most often blended oil.
Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt notes about Rose Geranium oil: "The tonifying effect of the terpene alcohol combined with the soothing influence of the esters are responsible for the fact that geranium is perceived differently for each individual. One person will perceive it as antiseptic, another as calmative, and a third as stimulant...because of this versatile character, geranium is an excellent foundation for massage and body oils."
Rose Geranium Oil is a toner of great amplitude and strength. This particular organic
oil has a great breadth of aroma - with a fantastic smooth and sweet floral scent. A spicy rose that alleviates
fears and gives back life force and joy, Geranium may be particularly capable of revitalizing female energies,
especially during menopause. A special noteworthy property of Geranium is to help in cases of edema for
some individuals. Warming and purifying, Geranium (according to some aromatherapists) has excellent regenerative
properties for the liver and spleen and enhances circulation.
true therapeutic quality Rose Geranium essential oil's touted ability to interfere positively with fat metabolism makes
it a good possible choice against cellulite. Known as astringent, detoxifying and regenerative, Geranium oil may
be one of the best oils for diverse skin problems, such as oily or congested skin, inflammations, eczema,
broken capillaries, varicose veins, dermatitis and is possibly effective to prevent premature aging skin. It may, when applied topically, soothe pain in the breasts before and during menstruation. It is also thought highly-active against Candida albicans without affecting bacterial flora. Further, it is noted to stop bleeding, and stimulate functions of both the liver and pancreas.
Geranium oil may act to balance hormone levels and as a mild, refreshing stimulant. It is noted by Valerie Worwood many times as a great traveler's companion oil, used upon arrival in a new local in a bath to refresh after a long journey.
