Geranium essential oil

Standard

geranium-1906554_960_720This 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.

Combos tried:

  • 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
  • 2 orange, 2 frankincense, 1 geranium

Want to try:

  • 2 lavender, 1 geranium, 1 rose
