What are the main differences in the benefits of Geranium Odorantissum vs
the Egyptian one? Which is more versatile? Is the Egyptian one the one they recommend for bug repellent?

Hi Smiiley,

Actually, the "regular" geranium from India (or the Reunion Islands -- but the price went through the roof, and the aroma wasn't any better than the Indian organic), OR rose geranium for insects. The Egyptian Geranium x asperum is recommended for anti-fungal/anti-microbial use, like candida. It's a little higher note, too -- not quite as interesting an aroma, but still very nice....
