Pelargonium graveolens, commonly known as rose geranium or rose-scented geranium, is native to certain parts of southern Africa. It is believed to have originated in regions of South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique and is now cultivated in many suitable climates. Our geranium is sourced from Egypt where it is known for its delightful rose-like fragrance, which makes it a popular choice for gardens, patios, and landscaping.
Geranium is a versatile and popular ingredient in perfumery known for its distinctive floral scent. Geranium fragrance can be obtained from natural essential oil extracted from the plant's leaves and flowers.
Geranium has a fresh, rosy, and slightly minty aroma with hints of citrus and green notes. Its fragrance is often described as uplifting, balancing, and harmonizing.
In perfumery, geranium is a Middle note in our Floral family. It helps form the core of a fragrance, adding depth and complexity to the overall composition. Geranium blends well with other floral notes like rose and jasmine, as well as with citrus, herbal, and woody notes.
Geranium brings a floral character to fragrances, contributing a soft and powdery aspect. Its green and slightly herbal undertones provide a fresh and lively quality. Geranium can add a touch of elegance and naturalness to perfume compositions.
Geranium is valued in perfumery for its versatility. It can be used in a wide range of fragrance categories, including floral, citrus, chypre, and oriental compositions. Depending on the other ingredients it is paired with, geranium can create different olfactory effects, from light and airy to deep and sensual.
Geranium essential oil is used in TCM for its balancing properties. It is believed to regulate the flow of qi (vital energy) and blood in the body, promoting overall well-being. In TCM, it may be used in massage oils or diffused to address imbalances and support emotional and physical health.
In Ayurvedic medicine, geranium essential oil is considered cooling and calming. It is believed to balance the Pitta dosha (one of the three fundamental energies) and promote a sense of tranquility. Geranium oil may be used in Ayurvedic massage or added to skincare preparations for its soothing and rejuvenating effects.
