Geranium is a perennial shrub. The oil is extracted through steam distillation of the leaves and stalk.

INCI: Pelargonium graveolens

ESSENCE: Geranium has a mothering personality. It is a middle note and is considered to be balancing and relaxing.

EFFECTS: Recommended for the workaholic or someone who can’t shut down, it's good for nervous tension, depression, stress and anxiety. Geranium essential oil is both sedative and uplifting.

THERAPY: Geranium is a diuretic and has a stimulating effect on the lymphatic system. It is very good for treating cellulite, fluid retention and oedema of the ankles due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It is useful in treating eczema, psoriasis and acne. Geranium essential oil helps balance the production of sebum, making it invaluable for oily or dry skin types.

PRECAUTIONS: Can be mildly photosensitive and may irritate sensitive skin.

Here's a great massage oil recipe to help you fight cellulite:

40 drops Geranium essential oil

20 drops Lime essential oil (steam distilled)

10 drops Rosemary essential oil

5 drops Ginger essential oil

60 ml Sweet Almond oil

50 ml Castor oil

10 ml Carrot Infused oil

Blend all essential oils together using a small beaker or a shot glass.  Blend vegetable oils together.  Add essential oils to the vegetable oil blend and pour into a glass bottle.  Massage into area twice a day for 30 days, then 2 - 3 times per week for maintenance.

NOTE: dry brushing the area first will increase blood circulation and accelerate the treatment. 

Here's another recipe that's effective for PMS (premenstrual syndrome):

3 drops Geranium essential oil

2 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil

1 drop Sweet Marjoram essential oil

5 ml Evening Primrose oil

Blend essential oils together and add to the Evening Primrose.  Massage over lower abdominal area in a clockwise direction.  Repeat 2 - 3 times a day if symptoms are severe.
