4 Benefits that will make you fall in love with Rose Geranium 🌸

Where does Rose Geranium come from?

There are several species of the geranium plant that are native to parts of Africa, including the rose geranium. There are rose-scented leaves on this variety of geranium. It is also known as sweet-scented geranium, rose-scented geranium, or old-fashioned rose geranium. Beautiful pale pink and white flowers bloom on this plant with velvety leaves and soft plush foliage.

The formulation process with rose geranium

In the process of formulating the Prana+Therapy remedy, I like to inhale the aromas from the various essential oils. In particular, I note the transition of these fragrances as they are added to the formulation. Occasionally, I will put a few drops on a blotter and breathe deeply. I'm always amazed at how the blotter changes when I use it again. I love how the scent bursts into my nostrils instantly, then departs almost immediately! 

The aromatic notes of Rose Geranium
  • The geranium oil family has middle notes that don't linger for a long time. 
  • Middle notes are scents that come forth from a blend shortly after the top notes have evaporated away and give perfumes their main form, their “heart,” and is why the middle note is known as the ‘heart note.’ 
  • Middle notes do not vaporize as quickly as top notes and remain on the skin longer. 
  • That is why essential oils that are middle notes are often found in high quality skincare. 
  • Rose Geranium is known for its immense healing properties. 

4 Claimed benefits of rose geranium essential oil include:

  • Antioxidant and anti-aging properties

Antioxidants are well-established as natural agents for improving your skin’s ability to heal itself from environmental toxins and exposure.

  • Anti-inflammatory properties

The anti-inflammatory properties of rose geranium oil have been demonstrated in animal studies.

In fact, one 2013 study Trusted Source showed rose geranium oil had a strong impact on reducing swelling in mice's paws and ears. It suggested that rose geranium oil could be the basis of new anti-inflammatory drugs that may have less harmful side effects than current medications.

  • Antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral properties

Rose geranium oil has strong antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. The food service industry even uses rose geranium oil as a natural preservative in some food products. In one  2017 review of studies, rose geranium was shown to reduce bacterial, fungi, and viruses that cause skin disease and infections.

  • Analgesic and anti-anxiety properties-

Aids to enhance relaxation, offers pain relief, and soothe anxiety.

Rose geranium is # 6 in the Prana+Therapy formulation.
