Qualified aromatherapists may use geranium essential oil for common complaints such as:

  • skin conditions: balancing production of sebum and in general skin care for all skin types, inflammatory skin conditions and bruising, skin regeneration, eczema, psoriasis and acne, impetigo and athlete’s foot
  • nervous tension and stress related conditions, chronic and acute anxiety, nervous exhaustion and stress due to overwork, irritability; balancing, stabilising, calming
  • reproductive systememotional stress related to the fluctuating hormones and menstrual problems.
  • others

How we use it:

Inhalation / Vaporisation:

- We really enjoy this oil as it blends so easily and can be incorporated into so many blends – try with bergamot, Blue chamomile. Lavender, Lemon, Mandarine or Sweet orange for anxiety and stress. Alternatively, for more invigorating effect, try with lemon, peppermint, black pine and a touch of rosemary. For ‘feeling blue’ try with some Bergamot and other citruses.

Skin applications:

- For a congested, oily skin cream - add together with our Cypress and/or Lavender essential oil to an unscented face cream. Lemon essential oil would also work well but remember to follow the recommended dilutions to avoid phototoxicity.

- Geranium is a ‘classic’ in blends relating to menstrual problems – combine with Sweet marjoram and Lavender for menstrual cramps and PMS.
