Geranium Essential Oil has a great many benefits but is used generally for its calming, nurturing aroma.  Thought to be a great aid for PMT, menopause and women’s problems the overall effect of Geranium Essential Oil is said to be ‘balancing’. Indigo Herbs has a great pure Geranium Essential Oil that comes from the best examples of Pelargonium graveolens. Let this lovely scent pervade your home to bring an overall feeling of harmony.

The history of Geranium stems from South Africa where the plant originates. The Sotho people used the non-hybridised wild Geranium to help heal wounds, abscesses and stop the flow of blood by applying a paste made from the leaves. Other traditional African uses include making a decoction from the leaf that would be applied to the skin of people who were suffering from heavy fever. The belief was that the person suffering from fever was possessed by an evil spirit and the geranium ointment had the powder to push the spirit out. In 1737 a man called Carolus Linnaeus catalogued all the new hybrid species of Geraniaceae together and included the genus Pelagonium. It is in fact this latter genus that is utilised to make ‘Geranium’ essential oil even though today’s Geranium Essential Oil has little to do with Geranium. This is because of Linnaeus and his 18th century work. The name has now stuck and nearly all Pelargonium essential oil is named Geranium Essential Oil, even though they are different plants. In the 1940’s the plant was introduced to Yunnan province in China which is now the biggest producer of Geranium Essential Oil.

Pelargonium graveolens is thought to be a hybrid and is one of only a few out of 250 Pelargonium plants that actually smell pleasant. Also called Lady Plymouth geranium this shrub can grow to about 1 meter in height and 1 meter across. The stems become woody with age with young shoots being covered in glandular hairs. The leaves are crinkled, velvety and rose scented with many glandular pockets of oil. The flowers are usually white to pink and reach peek bloom in the spring.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation, extraction or expression. During steam distillation the plant matter is put into boiling water or infused with steam. The steam is collected and the oils are separated from the water. During extraction, a solvent is used to extract the oil, by creating a concrete. This concrete is made up of plant matter, resins, waxes, and essential oils. A second solvent, such as ethyl alcohol is used to extract the essential oils from the concrete, this creates an absolute. During expression the plant matter is pressed (at cool temperatures) to release the oils.

.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Avoid if you are taking homeopathic remedies.

Indigo Herbs
Product ordered, dispatched and received within 24 hours. Discount voucher for next order included. The only complaint I have is that the herb I ordered, Damiana powder Is the most disgusting tasting substance I have ever come across, no matter what I put it in. If you are considering buying it, get the capsules, I will for my next order.

I am a returning customer to Indigo …
I am a returning customer to Indigo herbs. All previous orders were without problems. On my current order I tried without success to input a voucher code. There was no place to enter the code on the site when I made my order on this occasion. I sent an e mail to this effect to Indigo herbs and the response was to say the least, not very helpful and no follow up to the customer. No phone call, no follow up e mail, nothing. I am to say the least very disappointed and may take my custom elsewhere where it may be most appreciated. The voucher would have saved me the postage costs to Ireland,but could not be inserted on this occasion. This Matter has been resolved and I wish to reaffirm the 5 star rating to Indigo Herbs.
