Geranium essential oil is often referred to as the poor man’s rose. Its use dates back to ancient Egypt when Egyptians used Geranium oil to beautify their skin. The benefits for skin and hair make it great for adding to your face lotion or conditioner.
It’s also commonly used in the perfume industry. However, my favorite use is for the occasional stinging, skin irritation that often comes postpartum. It provides an almost immediate cooling, soothing relief. Keep it in your bathroom ? Check out more uses below.
Practical uses for Geranium essential oil:
- Combine with Fractionated Coconut Oil to give your partner a sensual massage.
- Apply directly to skin or enjoy an aromatherapy steam facial to beautify skin.
- Apply to skin after a shower for a smoothing effect.
- Add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner for a healthy, vibrant glow.
- Apply under your arms after a sweaty workout or a day in the sun.
- Place one drop in the palm of your hands, rub hands together, and cup over nose and mouth and breathe slowly for a calming, grounding effect.
- Add to your next DIY potpourri.
- Naturally repels insects
Emotionally, Geranium Essential Oil is The Oil of Love & Trust. When there has been a loss of trust in relationships, geranium encourages emotional honesty, love and forgiveness.
Geranium essential oil is also found in the Women’s monthly blend and the detoxification blend.
