Move over, Lavender. Geranium essential oil is another quintessential oil with the power to improve physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. As a nontoxic and nonirritant therapeutic oil, geranium oil can be utilised in a wide variety of ways to formulate natural products that deliver results.
Like so many other essential oils, geranium was first discovered and harnessed by the Ancient Egyptians. This aromatic perennial shrub has pink-white flowers and grows throughout South Africa, Egypt, and an island far off the coast of Madagascar. Its best- known properties include antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, deodorant, diuretic, tonic, and vermifuge. This diversity is matched by geranium’s rosy-sweet scent underlined by hints of mint.
There is no shortage of products developed to tackle tough skin issues like congested skin, dermatitis, acne and eczema. But very few of those products use wholesome and natural ingredients to deliver results. Instead, they blend potent and harmful chemicals that often cause additional harm to the epidermis. Incorporating geranium essential oil is the perfect way to set your products apart from the rest.
Since geranium oil has been shown to increase blood circulation right below the surface of the skin, it effortlessly accelerates the healing of spots caused by acne, skin irritations, and other wounds. It also helps that geranium can reduce inflammation of the skin tissue. Body wash, face wash, and moisturisers can all be infused with geranium to heal the skin.
Geranium is the perfect addition to any cosmetic or skincare product because its strong astringent properties induce contractions that tighten facial skin, slow down the effects of ageing, and prevent the skin from sagging. The lovely geranium aroma is an added bonus! Whether added to lotion, serums, or cleansers, this is a powerful ingredient.
We all know the dangers of chemical-based insect repellents, but many people are still tempted to use traditional bug sprays out of sheer desperation to avoid being bitten. Geranium has the potential to solve this problem by offering a natural bug repellent that is dramatically safer than store-bought options. Of course, it can also be used to heal insect bites and stop itching thanks to its many healing properties. Adding geranium into a natural bug spray product is the way to go.
