Rose Geranium oil has a balancing effect on the body and mind. Think of this oil in situations where a stabilising tonic effect is needed. Rose Geranium has the same properties as Geranium but with a softer rosy scent.

Rose Geranium contains a compound called Dimethyl Sulfide (DS) which has a strong, unpleasant odour. DS is quite volatile and can build up in the empty space at the top of a closed vessel. When this happens, a pop might be heard when the vessel is opened and the freshly opened bottle will smell distinctly sulphury. Often, it is incorrectly assumed that the oil has 'gone off' when in fact, it is more likely a sign of fresh oil. Simply leaving the top off for a while will allow the DS to dissipate. Furthermore, the correct use of a smelling strip rather than smelling an open bottle will also show that there is no unpleasant odour in the oil.


Nature/Essence – Balancing & Toning

SKIN ICON 72pxFOR THE SKIN
A wonderful oil for the skin, Rose Geranium’s balancing effect makes it suitable for dry, oily or combination skin, especially showing signs of congestion and stagnation such as acne, eczema, bruises and broken capillaries. Its healing and antiseptic properties are helpful for minor burns, wounds and skin ulcers and it is also recommended for neuralgia.
 
BODY ICON 72pxFOR THE BODY
Rose Geranium has a stabilising effect on hormonal and stress-related conditions. It is a very useful oil for women to support a balanced transition during menopause and for premenstrual symptoms. It is also popular for its regenerating and toning effects in body scrubs, cellulite blends and bruise balms.
 
MIND ICON 72pxFOR THE MIND
Rose Geranium really shines as a nervous system tonic, helping restore balance and a sense of stability during times of stress and swings of mood and energy. Its calming and uplifting action helps to ease nervous tension and irritability, instilling a sense of steadiness and strength.
