Our organically crafted Geranium Essential Oil is steam distilled from the tender green leaves and flowering tops of the Pelargonium x asperum (syn Pelargonium graveolens) plant. Geranium Essential Oil is stored in specialized glands throughout the green parts of this vigorous perennial which is released when crushed. The essential oil has a fresh, soft yet penetrating lemony, rosy aroma with rich, leafy green/herbaceous body notes.
Geranium Essential Oil is highly valued and used in premium brands of perfumery and cosmetics. Pelargonium graveolens [Family: Geraniaceae] is native of eastern part of the Mediterranean region, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. But this small shrub also grows widely on Reunion island, France; Spain; Italy; Morocco; Egypt and China. China is currently the largest producer of Geranium Essential Oil. The harvest period extends from march to September in China, while in Egypt, the leaves are cropped in June and July.
