Geranium Essential Oil

#geranium #geraniumessentialoil #Pelargoniumgraveolens

Geranium can be referred to as the 'heart oil' since it's known for providing emotional support for the heart as well as physical support for heart health!

Ancient Egyptians used Geranium oil for their skin and beauty routines, and since the Victorian era Geranium has been used in fragrances, beauty products, and even in food such as cakes and jellies.

Geranium oil is extracted from the entire geranium plant, which is native to South Africa. doTERRA sources their Geranium essential oil ethically from Kenya now, learn more about it's sustainable farming in the video below.

Geranium has many versatile uses and benefits for skin, hair, blood, liver, gallbladder, hormones, pancreas and kidneys. It's even an insect repellent! It's a gentle oil that's perfect for babies and children.

Emotionally, Geranium has a feminine energy (beneficial to both males and females as both have feminine energy). It's the oil of love and trust, and it helps restore confidence in the goodness of others and in the world. In that sense it helps heal from a broken heart, or a closed heart as a result of being hurt.

It encourages forgiveness, emotional honesty, and facilitation of grief or pain. For those that have a difficult time in accessing their emotions, like myself as an Aquarius sun sign - I've gotten much better at this recently by using Geranium oil. This oil is also perfect for reparenting work, as it nurtures our inner child instilling unconditional love.

That's why Geranium is the 'heart oil'! Learn more about the ways to use it below!
