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 or cold pressing.

Indigo Herbs Geranium Essential Oil is extracted using the "steam distillation" method. In this process the botanical material is placed in a still and steam is forced over the material. The hot steam helps to release the aromatic molecules from the plant material since the steam forces open the pockets in which the oils are kept. Molecules of the volatile oils then escape and evaporate into the steam. The temperature of the steam needs to be carefully controlled - just enough to force the plant material to let go of the essential oil, yet not too hot as to burn the plant material or the essential oil. The steam now containing the essential oil is passed through a cooling system to condense the steam which forms a liquid. The essential oil is then separated from the water and bottled, resulting in 100% pure essential oil.

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.
