Rose Geranium Essential Oil
This is one of the finest Rose Geranium oils we have found. While more expensive than other Geranium oils, it is worth the price if you are looking for an extraordinarily clear, rosy note. Geranium essential oil is one that is highly prized for its beneficial effects for skincare1, the female reproductive system, the nervous system, and the lymphatic/endocrine system.2,3 It is considered antiseptic, anti-inflammatory4, and detoxifying, and is indicated for balancing both dry and oily skin and the production of the skin's sebum.5,6
Aromatic Profile: Very fresh, lightly floral, with rich, leafy green/herbaceous body notes; somewhat penetrating.
Appearance: Very pale green/yellow, transparent liquid.
Use: Aromatherapy / Natural Perfumery.
Blending Suggestions: Add drop by drop to your blends until the desired effect is achieved.
Blends Well With: Angelica, Basil, Laurel Leaf, Bergamot and other citrus oils, Carrot Seed, Cedarwood, Citronella, Clary Sage, Clove, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Juniper, Lavender, Lime, Neroli, Oakmoss, Orange, Patchouli, Petitgrain, Rose, Rosemary, Sandalwood. We also recommend blending the different types of geraniums we carry to create a unique, complex geranium accord.

Customer Reviews for Geranium, Rose
- Sweet and grassy Review by OilLover
- I purchased this product to extend the rose fragrance in lotions containing small amounts of Rose Otto. It is definitely very strong and heavy. It does smell very sweet but has a grassy, minty overtone. It is probably one of the best geraniums I own. Definitely worked for the my purpose. (Posted on 9/19/14)
- very nice Review by Eleanor
This recent batch is a little more green and less rosy and powdery than the last batch. At first it seemed definitely to be a top note. But a week later there was a beautiful fresh clear geranium leaf aroma on the perfume strip.
I love Geranium for many reasons: its aroma, it is a great blending oil, is said to be an adaptogen, emotional balancer, stress easer, and great for skincare especially for mature skin.
I use this in most of my facial care products for mature skin synergized with Frankincense and other oils. It is quite effective in deodorants alone or with a blend of lavender oils.

- Beautiful, sweet, floral Geranium Review by Gudi's Aromatherapy
- This Rose Geranium is nice and floral, not too herbaceous and great for skin care for its balancing benefits (sebum production and hormones). It is really hard to find a nice Geranium with a more floral note than herbaceousness. This one is especially smooth and lovely. Another great oil from Eden Botanicals (Posted on 2/15/13)
- Sweet, Rosy, Floral Review by Sharon
- The description of this beautiful geranium eo is exact. The absolute best geranium I have ever seen. It eliminates the need to add rose in a blend. Wonderful just by itself! (Posted on 2/14/13)
