Rose Geranium Essential Oil
Rose Geranium is a variety of the popular geranium flower with a floral, sweet, and slightly musky scent deeply reminiscent of roses. This delicate smell is particularly pronounced in plants grown on the banks of the Nile River in Egypt, which is where our world-class Rose Geranium is cultivated and distilled by a local grower that supports fair labor conditions and local development in their community.
Egyptian Rose Geranium is particularly known for its balanced smell, which is simultaneously sweet, floral, and fresh with hints of herbal, earth, and wood notes, without any one aspect of the aroma overtaking any other.
The oil is also popular for its therapeutic properties, and it is often used to reduce stress and replace it with a sense of tranquil, focused calm. Rose geranium is also commonly used topically, thanks to its reported antioxidant, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory properties.
