Rose Geranium has been cultivated since the 17th century for its intense aromatic foliage, and it was once regarded as a great healing plant - people would grow it around their cottages to keep evil spirits away!
With its uplifting rosy, mint over-tones, Rose Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) is by far the most exquisitely scented, and therefore the most popular, of all the Pelargonium species.
The essential oil of Rose Geranium, extracted from the aerial parts of the plant, is especially helpful during times of stress or sleeplessness. It can also provide fortifying relief for those suffering pre-menstrual symptoms.
With its beautiful floral scent, Rose Geranium is used extensively in perfumery and is a favorite aromatherapy essential oil for both the professional aromatherapist and the layperson.
Rose Geranium is also a highly valued skin care ingredient. It's stabilizing and regulatory effect on sebaceous glands give it a balancing quality for skin that is either too dry, too oily, or a combination of both. Geranium will also help normalize congested areas of the skin and has been said to relieve the symptoms of eczema.
