PELARGONIUM GRAVEOLENS/PELARGONIUM SP.
GERANIUM/ROSE GERANIUM LEAF/FLOWER OIL
The Geranium plant, boasting both aromatic leaves and vibrant flowers, hails from South Africa, but its widespread appeal led to its cultivation in various regions, including Europe and Egypt. Historically, geranium has been cherished for its fragrant properties, with both the leaves and flowers used to create perfumes and essential oils, as well as for therapeutic purposes. On a holistic level, geranium is associated with emotional balance and revitalization. Its calming scent is believed to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, and fatigue, making it a favorite in aromatherapy practices. Diving into its properties, the Geranium Leaf/Flower is rich in beneficial compounds like citronellol, geraniol, and linalool, which possess antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant qualities. For skin health, geranium is a treasure trove. Its ability to balance oil production makes it suitable for diverse skin types, from oily to dry. Its anti-inflammatory attributes can soothe irritations and its astringent nature works to refine skin texture, minimizing pores and promoting firmness. Moreover, geranium aids in cellular regeneration, assisting in the fading of scars, blemishes, and promoting an even skin tone. Whether used as a direct infusion in skincare products or harnessed for its essential oil, the Geranium Leaf/Flower stands as a testament to nature's ability to heal, beautify, and restore both the body and mind.
