Our lovely Geranium distillation is from the petals of the Pelargonium graveolens, a geranium native to Rwanda. The vibrant red, white, pink, and purple blossoms of the geranium with its inviting fresh-floral fragrance make it an admired flower for gardeners, chefs, and herbalists. Geraniums are highly adaptable – after being removed from their native Africa, the flowers flourished in Europe, China and Russia.
The light, refreshing aroma similar to the soft femininity of rose petals promotes adaptability, longevity and a brave, nomadic spirit. Geranium oil is also a wonderfully conditioning skin serum, and deep inhalations will lift the spirits, dispel doubt, surge sensuality, and assist positive perception.
