Amazing Benefits Of Geranium Essential Oil
Geranium essential oil wasn't really on my radar until I got a bottle in my Simply Earth Subscription Box and discovered these benefits:
1. Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
Due to its astringent properties that tighten and tone skin and help regulate oil production. Add a drop to your daily moisturizer.
2. Helps heal mild skin wounds and irritations
It's powerful antiseptic and antimicrobial properties make it very useful. Put a few drops of geranium oil directly on the wound and wrapping in gauze. Repeat for several days until healing is complete.
3. Eliminates athlete's foot
Combine a few drops of geranium oil with sea salt and water for a healing foot bath.
4. Balances your mood
Just dab a few drops on your wrists or neck or diffuse it.
5. Reduces stress and tension with a few dabs on your wrist
6. Alleviates Depression
7. Regulates Menstrual Cycle
8. Potentially Lowers Blood Pressure
9. Boosts Immunity
10. Heals Cold Sores
Dab a few drops on sores to relieve pain and help it heal quicker.
11. Naturally, deters bugs
If you plan to outside then take geranium with you. Bugs hate it. Even dusts mites don't like it.

Geranium Essential Oil Recipes
Unlike other, more potent essential oils, geranium can be applied directly to the skin without causing rash or irritation in most cases.
Test on your skin first, just to be sure you aren't sensitive to it.
Because geranium is so mildly scented and balancing in nature, it blends extremely well with more potent oils such as thyme essential oil, or jasmine which is more floral scented.
