Most of us are familiar with geraniums as a part of our summer gardens and patio flowers. These tough bug resistant plants offer blooms all spring until well into fall. In some areas the plant can be a perenial offering year after year of fresh flowers.
Geranium essential oil however also can provide year-after-year of support to our health!
Where it comes from
Geraniums used in making doTERRA’s essential oil come from the Republic of Mauritius. This is a French republic island off Africa’s coastline. The island is part of the Mascarene Islands and is approximately 790 square miles in size.
Geraniums love the warm, coastal climate and soil provided on the island where they thrive naturally.
The leaves, rather than the flowers are steam distilled to create the essential oil.
Liver, Gallbladder, Pancreas and Kidney
Applying geranium essential oil over these areas or taking the oil in a capsule internally can help support the functions of these organs.
Cuts, Wounds and Bleeding
Geranium can be used to stop bleeding as well as restoring blood flow. Apply gently to the area effected.
Used in conjunction with Clary Sage, Geranium can help support hormone shifts through a woman’s cycle and during menopause.
Dry and Oil Skin & Hair
Applying Geranium to your hair, scalp, face and body can help your body retain moisture and control oil.
Likewise, applying a drop of Geranium to your facial moisturizer can help skin hydration and balance to skin tone.
Geranium flowers are bright cheery flowers that uplift feelings. The Geranium essential oil also work in this way with feelings of being neglected and lonely. The essential oil when diffused or applied over the heart can help us feel mended, healed and whole.
Geranium blends well with Lavender, Sandalwood and Patchouli to create earthy, centering aromas.
Price Per Drop
Geranium is economically priced at $0.10 per drop. That is an incredible savings on just the daily moisturizer support alone.
