Essential oils are natural products that can be used to relieve stress, improve appearance and even help with different ailments. The oil is extracted from various plants and used for a variety of reasons—everything from headache relief to insect repellant. Essential oils are highly fragrant and can typically be used topically, diffused and some even ingested.

One of the more diverse essential oils is geranium essential oil. The oil is extracted from the leaves of geranium plants through steam distillation.

Benefits of Using Geranium Essential Oil Include:

  • Healthy skin and hair
  • Treating minor ailments
  • Digestive health
  • Stress relief

Health and Beauty Benefits of Geranium Essential OilHealthy Skin and Hair

Forget about buying expensive face and eye creams. Geranium oil promotes cell health and the regeneration of new cells. It can also prevent sagging skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles by tightening up the skin.

To use: For smooth, younger looking skin, add two drops of geranium oil to your face lotion and apply as usual. For an extra indulgent skin treatment, steam your face with oil added to the bowl.

Geranium oil also has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties which make it powerful in treating skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and dermatitis.

To use: Add two drops of geranium oil to your daily face or body wash.    

Give your locks a vibrant healthy glow with geranium oil. The oil strengthens hair and adds shine to dull locks. It can be used on both dry and oily hair types.

To use: For a healthy boost, add two drops to your shampoo or conditioner.

Treating Minor Ailments

Geranium essential oil acts as an antiseptic on cuts and scrapes. It can help accelerate the healing process of cuts and wounds and acts to help prevent infection. It can also help scars and other skin spots fade or completely vanish.  

To use: Apply two drops of geranium oil onto the affected area and cover with a gauze. For scars and skin spots, apply a drop of the oil and let sit overnight. Do this regularly to see results.

Digestive Health

Geranium oil is a natural diuretic, meaning it will increase the need to urinate. This helps your body release toxins naturally.

To use: Inhale geranium oil through a diffuser or vaporizer. You can also try adding a drop of oil to honey or flax seeds and ingest orally.

Stress Relief

With better-looking skin and better digestive health, you’ll already be on your way to lower stress, but using geranium oil can also help lower stress levels and calm nerves.

To use: Place a few drops in a cloth or tissue and inhale. You can also use a diffuser or put a few drops into a warm bath.

You can find geranium oil at local health food stores such as GNC and the Vitamin Shoppe, through a doTERRA representative, or online at Bulk Apothecary or Amazon.
