Geranium oil is made from the leaves and stems of a number of species of the botanical genus Pelargonium, in particular Pelargonium Graveolens. Three common commercial grades are based on by origin, but also each with a distinctive slightly different scent.We sell the Egyptian geranium oil, which is most similar to the so-called Bourbon oil, less like the Chinese oil, the latter is greener and fresher.

In the course of 2021 we will switch to an organic oil, until then you can receive both organic and conventional oil.

These three species sometimes lead to confusion, even more confusing is the term 'Rose geranium', also known in French as 'Géranium Rosat'. Usually this just means geranium oil. Sometimes the term is used to indicate that it concerns oil with a relatively high amount of citronellol or a lot of geraniol. It can also mean a French specialty that is (probably) no longer made: geranium oil that is distilled through a barrel of rose petals, so that you get an oil that smells more like rose than regular geranium oil. It also happens that rose geranium refers to a specific oil from East Africa, or from the (former) French colonies and territories of the Indian Ocean (Bourbon). However, it probably comes from the French name for lemon geranium: géranium rosat, meaning any Pelargonium graveolens. The English name is geranium, the French name is géranium rosat, the German name is geranie.

Geranium oil is widely used in perfumes. It is mainly a heart note. In the top there are some green minty elements, but in the heart this develops into a 'dry' rose scent with green characteristics. The rose remains far into the base, the green changes into a green herbal scent.
Geranium is very versatile, almost anywhere where rose can be used, geranium can also be used. Ideal to introduce some rose scent but, due to the dryness, not a real floral scent. Geranium is also a very suitable oil for perfuming creams, make-up and the like. It is also very suitable for soap, it remains quite stable and can enhance and fix floral scents.

Nothing has been added to the oil, it is 100% pure essential oil.

Geranium oil is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Geranium oil contains citral, citronellol, geraniol, limonene and linalool, substances that some people have an allergic reaction to.
