Geranium oil is argued to be one of the most important oils in aromatherapy as it is almost a first-aid kit in itself. It is steam-distilled from the aromatic green parts of the pelargonium, especially the leaves. The plant must be freshly cut just before the flowers open.
It is particularly useful for healing skin conditions such as eczema and acne, and fading scars and spots.
Geranium is a great anti-ager since it promotes cell growth, improving skin elasticity and tightening, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It is also a good essential oil for reducing cellulite.
One of the stand-up benefits of geranium oil as a skin treatment is it’s ability to regulate oil production. Creating a balance between oily and dry skin, it is beneficial for restoring a healthy balance to all skin types. It also brings a radiant glow to skin!
