Effective Essential Oils Blended by Experts
Geranium oil is a natural substance commonly used holistically to help improve emotional, mental, and physical health. Those who use aromatherapy are aware of the potent and positive effects of this essential oil. Geranium oil comes from the steam distillation of freshly ground parts of the geranium macrorrhizum.

This deep, rich resinous essence comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the rock rose, rather than the oleoresin that produces the solvent extract known as labdanum.

It has found aromatic applications outside of perfumery, in cases of stress, depression, minor pain, inflammation, skin issues, and in respiratory complaints. The effects are peaceful, calming, and deeply meditative.
