Amour Natural Rose Geranium Pure Essential Oil 10ml

Rose Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) 

Aroma 
Egyptian Geranium has a slightly earthy apple aroma and Rose Geranium has a more rose-like 
aroma. 
The plant 
Geranium has about 700 different varieties, one of which is Pelargonium graveolens. The shrub 
originates from South Africa and is grown there and in areas of Europe. The different growing 
conditions result in a different aroma. 
The extraction 
The oil is extracted from the leaves and stalks by the process of steam distillation. 
Advice: be cautious of geranium that may be sold as rose geranium but actually comes from the 
Pelargonium odorantissimum plant. This oil gets it rose aroma from being distilled over rose petals. It is cheaper but it is a mock-rose geranium plant. Our Rose Geranium is from the genuine plant Pelargonium graveolens. 
Affects 
Geranium is used to lift one’s spirits and reduce tension. It is commonly used in skincare to boost 
skin health and clear sluggish looking skin. 
Rose geranium is commonly used in perfumery and cosmetics, in particular is to enhance the smell of rose which is typically very expensive. 
History
