To quote Shakespeare, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” The words might be especially true of Rose Geranium oil's gorgeously complex floral aroma.
This unique variety of Geranium is distilled from the leaves of the Pelargonium roseum plant. Rose Geranium essential oil is often used in aromatherapy to encourage serenity and a balanced emotional state due to its wonderful aroma. In addition to being used as a tonic to help promote reproductive health, Rose Geranium essential oil is effective in skincare. Rose Geranium oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help calm skin inflammation and irritation.
