Geranium Essential Oil

Balancing, sedative, hormone support

Geranium essential oil has a great all-over balancing effect on hormones, emotions and even your skin.

Lifting your mood and sedating you at the same time, it's an excellent support for PMS and menopause symptoms.

Geranium is especially useful in skincare remedies and is often used in formulations with rose essential oil to "stretch" the (extremely expensive) rose aroma.

Emotionally, geranium essential oils are used to balance mood swings, excessive emotionalism, lack of moderation or harmony, overattachment and workaholism.
