Geranium

Geranium


Description

While there are over 200 different varieties of Pelargonium flowers, only a few are used as essential oils. The uses of Geranium essential oil date back to ancient Egypt when Egyptians used Geranium oil to beautify skin. In the Victorian era, fresh geranium leaves were placed at formal dining tables as decorative pieces and to be consumed as a fresh sprig if desired; in fact, the edible leaves and flowers of the plant are often used in desserts,
cakes, jellies, and teas. 
As an essential oil, Geranium has been used to promote the appearance of clear skin and healthy hair, making it ideal for skin and hair care products. It also helps calm nerves and lessen feelings of stress. Geranium is also known to naturally repel insects.
