Description

Geranium Egyptian plant is a hairy perennial shrub, often used in hedgerows, and will stand up to about one meter high (3 feet) with pointed leaves, serrated at the edges and pinkish-white flowers. The leaves are used to produce the concrete, and the oil is obtained through food grade solvent extraction

History

There are about 700 species of Geraniums, many of which have become very popular as decorative, scented house and garden plants. Only about 10 of all those varieties are used for essential oil production. In Africa, Geraniums are often planted around the house for protection, particularly against snakes. According to legend, the prophet Muhammad imbued the Geranium with its lovely scent, when one day he passed by a humble weed on his way down from the mountain. He took a moment to rest and hung his sweaty shirt on the herb. The Geranium held it up to the sun until it was dry, which pleased the prophet so much that he covered it in beautifully scented flowers. Geranium oil has become one of the most widely used oils in Aromatherapy; its overall effect is described as 'balancing'.

Uses
