ALL ABOUT ROSE GERANIUM ESSENTIAL OIL

 

Rose Geranium Essential Oil is one of the most feminine essential oils, not just for its sublime fragrance but for the way it can make you feel both strong and beautiful - beautifully strong even!  I have used Rose Geranium as a single note in many products but like all essential oils, Rose Geranium really likes company.  At Angelico we use Rose Geranium essential oil in our Serums for Combination, Dry and Mature Skins.  We blend it with woody notes  of Frankincense, Cedarwood and Sandalwood but it also blends well with florals like Rose and Neroli and citrus notes such as Grapefruit and Mandarin to give it a real ‘sparkle’.  As you see, Rose Geranium not only has a beautiful aroma, it is wonderfully versatile too.  It has the power to minimise the look of wrinkles because it tightens facial skin and slows down the effects of ageing by promoting new cell growth.

 

Rose Geranium was used by the Egyptians to promote beautiful and radiant skin. Now, Rose Geranium oil is used to treat acne, reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety and balance hormones. This beautiful oil can also uplift your mood, lessen fatigue and promote emotional wellness.

 

ROSE GERANIUM OR SIMPLY GERANIUM?

Rose Geranium is the rosier smelling version of Geranium essential oil.  It used to always have the word roseum at the end of its Latin name to distinguish one from the other but now the Latin names on Geranium essential oils is nearly always the same for both - pelargonium graveolens.  A Geranium essential oil that is not a Rose Geranium has a much more ‘green’ fragrance - a little sharper - but it does share the same properties.  Having said that, the more floral fragrance of the Rose Geranium variety is to my mind more fitting to it’s myriad feminine properties. 
 

INTERESTING FACT

Rose Geranium oil can also be used as a natural insect repellant. 

Geraniums were originally planted on the periphery of Mediterranean gardens to ward off insects.  Now they are a staple for their colour and robustness as they can survive with very little water.
