In addition to being a vibrant and lovely garden flower, geranium has also been used in aromatherapy for hundreds of years. From easing symptoms of menopause and perimenopause to relieving stress and anxiety, geranium oil’s health and wellness benefits are numerous. What’s more, geranium oil’s sweet aroma and powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties make it an indulgent and efficacious anti-aging salve.
Native to South Africa and cultivated in Europe and Asia, geranium oil is a natural astringent that soothes redness, calms inflammation, and provides deep hydration and toning to the skin. As dermatologist Howard Sobel, MD, notes, “geranium helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while calming irritated spots and boosting naturally glowing skin.” By naturally tightening the skin, it combats wrinkles and fine lines, and its anti-inflammatory properties enable it to soothe acne and hyperpigmentation. As a result, geranium oil lends the skin a natural evenness and radiance.
Geranium oil is best used in combination with other oils, such as pomegranate oil, to best reap its powerful toning and brightening effects. Our Absolute Anti Aging Face Oil combines the cleansing, soothing properties of geranium with tightening, brightening frankincense to create an all-around indulgent remedy for aging woes. In addition, our Deeply Clarifying Face Oil harnesses the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities of geranium, tea tree, and orange in a rich formula that combats blemishes and impurities.
Whether you’re looking for a remedy to wrinkles and fine lines or age spots and unevenness, geranium essential oil offers a sweet, luxurious solution.
