Geranium Essential Oil enhances balance and brings good humor and joy.
The geranium is native to South Africa and was first mentioned in Europe in 1690. There are more than 200 varieties of geraniums or pelargoniums, but very few varieties are distilled for essential oil. The Egyptian geranium is one of the most prestigious in the world and recognized for its multiple properties. The Geranium, and specifically the botanical species Pelargonium Graveolens, is a plant capable of surprising with one of the most valuable essences in the world of perfumery and cosmetics, as it has a sensational aroma that makes it different and particular from the others. Its fragrance confers a floral, fresh, sweet touch with a fruity note in perfumes. For all this, geranium is considered one of the most important ingredients in perfumery.
The etymology of its name derives from the Greek name geranos or crane, since the geranium seeds have a shape similar to the beak of this white bird. On the other hand, graveolens refers to the strong and intense aroma that it gives off.
