11 Geranium Essential Oil Recipes

Geranium Essential Oil’s benefits in Aromatherapy are so diverse. From balancing the body and mind, easing nervous tension and anxiety*, to promoting productivity when feeling “stuck,” Geranium Essential Oil helps to puts us back on track where we want to be. Its aroma is strong, sweet, yet at the same time is elegant and soft. It has “Yin” properties; therefore it’s a superb oil for women to keep in their Essential Oil kit.
