Safety
Rose Geranium oil is non-toxic, non-irritant and generally non-sensitizing and regarded as safe but can cause sensitivity to some people. Avoid this oil during pregnancy since it can balance the hormonal system.

 

Not to be mistaken for Geranium Essential Oil Rose Geranium is derived from a bushy shrub with small pink flowers native to South American. Rose Geranium is a pricier oil that’s why I only have a teeny tiny 5ml bottle. Rose Geranium has long been used in South Africa as well as Reunion, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco. During the 17th century, Rose Geranium was brought to Spain and France. Teas made from Rose Geranium were used to stop internal bleeding and calm upset digestion. It was also used to ward off evil spirits.

Through a co-distillation process of both Rose and Geranium essential oils, a magnificent blending of both florals is extracted. Rose Geranium is often used to encourage serenity and a balanced emotional state. It can be used as a tonic to help promote reproductive health and just like both separate florals, Rose Geranium is wondrous in skincare.
