The lingering, sweet floral aroma of Geranium flower or also known as pelargonium graveolens has been widely used throughout history. Its plant can easily be recognized with its deep magenta tones that shine with distinctive veins. Most geranium species are perennials, grown for the beautiful foliage it produces. When used in form of essential oil, Geranium offers many medical and cosmetic effects and has been a popular choice for many perfumes, scented soaps and cologne.
Health Benefits of Geranium Essential Oil
Geranium essential oil comes with many health benefits aside from being used in perfumes for its sweet and fruity smell.
Works as an astringent
Rose geranium is known for being an astringent. This aromatic oil is capable of inducing contractions in many parts of the body, particularly in the muscles, gums, skin, tissues and blood vessels. This process gives you an improved, toned look (which results to it being widely used as a toner). It helps to prevent skin and muscles from sagging, as well as avoiding the loosening of teeth by tightening the area around the gums. A natural anti-ageing oil that keeps your skin fresh and young-looking, with a floral fragrance to boot!
