Rose Geranium is the rosier smelling version of Geranium essential oil. It used to always have the wordroseumat 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.
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.

I always want to write about new things but Lavender just keeps rising to the top of my hit parade.... Last month we went to our friends' amazing Lavender Farm near Chichester. They open for a whole week each summer to welcome the public into their Lavender fields. It is spectacularly beautiful.
To keep my mind balanced and to retain some semblance of personal care I turned to essential oils as always and specifically to my Serum. I like to swap my Serum from time to time and ourSerum for Sensitive Skinis my current skin and soul saviour.
