Pelargonium graveolens, also known as Rose Geranium, is a perennial plant native to Africa but was introduced to the European countries during the 17th century. There are about 750 different varieties of Pelargonium that have been hybridized, many of which are grown for ornamental purposes. Only a few varieties are principally cultivated for distillation of Geranium essential oil. The oil varies, depending on growing conditions and species. Pelargonium graveolens is often called the Bourbon Geranium because the plant was first cultivated on Reunion Island, formerly one of the Bourbon Islands. Although the oil is often used by the pharmaceutical industry to make synthetic and to adulterate true Rose oil, the two species are distantly related.

Similar to all flower oils, Geranium essential oil is antidepressant and antiseptic. It is also a valuable astringent and a haemostatic, which makes it very useful in treating injuries. It also promotes speedy healing. Geranium oil is used as a common ingredient in skincare for its antiseptic and astringent properties and actions in balancing the production of sebum, as well as for its delightful perfume. This makes it valuable for skins that are excessively dry or oily, or for dry skins with oily patches.

Geranium essential oil also has a stimulating effect on the lymphatic system, and this combined with the diuretic action can be an effective treatment for cellulites, fluid retention and oedema of the ankles. The two properties reinforce each other in helping the body to eliminate fluids more efficiently, and in fact Geranium is a valuable aid to elimination in general, having a tonic effect on both the liver and kidneys.

The fragrance of Geranium essential oil is a herblike combination of rose, with some citrus and a suggestion of wood.

The reaction of Geranium oil is valuable in emotional balancing and solace encouraging. It can balance a passive aggressive nature and relive anxiety, irrational behavior and stress.
