Cruz Hemp Geranium Oil

Pelargonium graveolens

Geranium oil is therapeutic in many ways by balancing emotions, relieving stress, enhancing moods, and strengthening mind and body. Cruz Hemp’s Rejuvenate Skin Serum Roll-on utilizes the power of pure Geranium essential oil. Geranium oil supports a shining complexion, promotes new skin cell growth, and slows down the skins aging process. 

Origins

 Geranium flowers, also referred to as Pelargoniums, come from the Geraniaceae family, native to Egypt and South Africa. The flowers were introduced to European countries in the 17th century. As the demand for this precious oil grew for perfume and beauty products, this essential oil became more ubiquitous. Today, over 15 countries commercially produce different varieties of Geranium essential oil. The healing properties of the plants’ oils have been utilized since ancient times.

There are several species of Geraniums and over 700 varieties, yet only ten of those are used for essential oil production. Our Geranium essential oil comes from Pelargonium graveolens, a species known for its wonderful skincare benefits. The fresh foliage on the plant is trimmed right before the flowers bloom. The trimmings are left to wilt for a day or two and then steam distilled. It takes over one thousand pounds of Geranium to produce 21 pounds of essential oil. The oil comes out clear, with a light green tinge and an aroma similar to roses. Common garden Geraniumsdo not produce enough oil fit for extracting.

 

Properties

The most popular uses of Geranium essential oil are in perfumes and skincare. The oils have powerful astringent and cytophilic properties that aid aging skin by promoting regenerating of new skin cells. The oil also can help reduce stubborn blemishes. It brings balance to skin that is too oily or dry. You can add a few drops of Geranium to your face cream for balancing your complexion. It may also be helpful for getting rid of dandruff and can be used for scalp massage or in a homemade conditioner.  

Chinese medicine has recognized Geranium oil for its ability to help ease inflammatory disorders and clear heat from the body. The oil possesses anti-fungal properties that can assist in treating conditions like athlete’s foot. Some claim it to be helpful for eczema, bad circulation, hemorrhoids, lice, and even repelling mosquitos. Some studies also show that Geranium increases urination. It is useful for releasing toxins, sugar, and sodium from the body.  The sharp scented oil contains high levels of Citronellol. Always dilute in a carrier oil for topical application.
