Geranium Essential Oil

Often used in perfumes and skin care products, Young Living Geranium comes to you from Egypt. Geranium has a beautiful floral scent when diffused. From YL: Geranium essential oil was used by the Egyptians to promote beautiful, radiant-looking skin when applied topically. Today this potent oil is often used in high-end perfumes and skin care products. Cultivated from the fragrant flower native to South Africa and obtained through a careful distillation process, Geranium’s sweet, floral scent can be used topically and aromatically. Add Geranium to lotion, body wash, and hair care to enhance the aroma of your personal care products. Because Geranium has versatile benefits, you can also diffuse it to invite a peaceful, spiritual feeling in your living room or meditative space.

Today we are going to focus not on its beauty, but instead the health benefits of Geranium. Geranium is one of our most practical healing oils. Please ensure that you always consult with your doctor first about any medical condition. Essential oils can and should be used to support your health care journey.
