This one always reminds me of turkish delight, even though that’s more of a rose thing. It’s one of my favourite florals, which isn’t necessarily saying much as I’m not a fan of flowery-sweet scents as a rule, but I do find it quite happy and uplifting. I’m learning to balance the sweetness with something like a citrus or spice (e.g. black pepper).
Geranium essential oil is used to combat stress and depression, as well as for general relaxation. It blends well with, among others: bergamot, lavender, rosemary, chamomile, patchouli, and citruses including lime, orange, grapefruit, and lemon.
- 2 grapefruit, 1 lime, 1 geranium – fresh and spring-like
- 3 rosewood, 2 geranium, 2 mandarin, 1 patchouli – nice depth of scent, with almost a little of everything
