Geranium is sometimes refers as the “poor man’s rose oil”, as it has the similar properties and uses as Rose. It’s sweet, rose-like aroma is long-lasting and potent.
It’s traditionally used for healthy skin (repair or rejuvenation), as well as widely known for its emotional support. It commonly promotes peace and a decrease in stress, especially in regards to releasing negativity, and is great for tension and overall well-being.
Geranium essential oil provides numerous health benefits due its uses as an astringent, hemostatic, cicatrisant, diuretic, and many others. Below are just some of the ways this essential oil serves both your physical and emotional health.
It can help eliminate the appearance of scars and dark spots by improving blood circulation just below the surface of the skin and promoting an equal distribution of melanin. It also causes your gums, muscles, intestines, skin, blood vessels, and tissues to contract due to its astringent properties, prevents skin problems like sagging and wrinkling.
Geranium essential oil has diuretic properties, which means that it increases urination. Urination is the most effective ways to remove toxins from the body (compared to excretion and perspiration). These eliminated toxins are urea, uric acid, bile salts, pathogens and other synthetic or chemical substances, heavy metals, pollutants, and even sugar. Urination also reduces blood pressure because the more you urinate, the more sodium is eliminated, causing blood pressure to fall.
Cell Growth Supporter
Geranium oil promotes cell growth; it helps to recycle dead cells and supports the regeneration of new cells. This will allow your metabolism to work more effectively. By using geranium oil in a diffuser or vaporizer, you can take advantage of this amazing benefit.
Geranium oil has the power to fight nerve pain when it’s applied to the skin. Developing research suggests that applying rose geranium oil to the skin can significantly reduce pain that follows shingles, a condition caused by the herpes virus.
Geranium oil helps to speed up the healing process of cuts, wounds and incisions. It also helps in fading the look of scars and other spots on the skin quickly. Because geranium oil has powerful cicatrisant properties, it increases blood circulation right below the surface of the skin — this helps with the healing of spots caused by acne, cuts or wounds, surgical incisions or skin irritations.
