Rose Geranium has a lovely scent reminiscent of rose with tones of geranium. Its delicate aroma has been widely sought after by the hardiest of hunters because it is so disliked by creepy crawlies. With the increasing concern of Lyme Disease, many of our customers are putting a drop or two on the cuff of their pants before venturing into the woods.
Originating in Madagascar, the Rose Geranium (Pelargonium roseum) later migrated through Africa into Europe. One of 700 varieties of Geranium, the Rose Geranium is especially coveted for its unique aroma and therapeutic qualities. Prized for its gentle support and nourishment of the skin, Rose Geranium can be found in many skincare products, and has through history been considered balancing and supportive to women.
Rose Geranium blends well with Basil, Bergamot and other citrus oils, Cedarwood, Citronella, Clary Sage, Clove, Lavender, Orange, Patchouli, Rosemary and other Geranium oils.
Topically: Apply to the clothing prior to being in nature. Can be diluted and applied to the ankles, bottom of the feet, wrists, down the spine and on abdomen to support the body. Maximum topical concentration is 17% (17 drops of Geranium Essential Oil to 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil such as Almond or Jojoba Oil).
Diffusing: Beeyoutiful®'s Rose Geranium Essential Oil is an incredible fragrance to relieve the stress of the day, uplift your outlook, soothe away tension, and energize the brain! Many women love and use it as a comfort during monthly hormonal shifts. It can be diffused on its own or mixed with other essential oils to create a customized aroma.
Household Uses: Rose Geranium is an excellent tool to keep the creepy-crawlies away. It can be combined with your favorite body lotion to use on the skin or diffused in the kitchen to keep flies away from the food. Add a few drops to your laundry detergent to enjoy the pleasant smell of the garden's beauty on your clothes or sheets.
Caution: Rose Geranium Essential Oil has known interactions with some medications, so please see your doctor prior to using Rose Geranium Essential Oil if you are on any medications. Maximum topical concentration is 17% (17 drops of Geranium Essential Oil to 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil).
Pregnancy/Lactation: Although Rose Geranium is considered safe in general for use during pregnancy and lactation, we advise that you speak with your healthcare practitioner prior to use to ensure it is appropriate for your specific situation.
Not to be confused with Geranium Oil, this is apparently one of the main repellents of ticks, as many have mentioned. I bought it to add to my homemade bug spray, but you can also just put a few drops directly onto your clothing...socks, shoes, pant leg, etc. It seems to be working for us, and smells great.
I bought this after reading that it would help to keep the "creepy crawlies" away. The ticks in our area are rampant so I figured it was worth a try. I mixed it up with a few other EO's in a spray bottle and took it along on a recent hike. It worked wonderful. No ticks, mosquito bites or black flies! I'm not in love with the scent alone but, because it worked against the bugs I will be buying this again.
I bought this for tick season, but we really haven't had ticks that badly this summer. So I was waiting to try it-and found an opportunity IN my house this past week! We had an invasion of flying ants-covering one window frame and curtains, and right before company was coming!! I vaccuumed up as many as I could, but they were still coming out of a crack in the sill. At the last minute I remembered the rose geranium, and thought, "What do I have to lose?". I sprinkled some drops at the crack in the sill, and more ants poured out. They must not have liked the smell. But after that, the flow was checked. I had to leave and get ready for company, but when I checked later, the only thing left at the crack were some dead bodies-not sure if the oil killed them or if they had just died for other reasons. After this, we have had one or two at a time show up, but they are easily killed. I think that oil really repelled and/or killed them, and stopped the invasion!
"This thin, slightly yellow oil has a fresh, very floral note. I really geranium oil and this Rose Geranium is even better. The hint of rose to the characteristic geranium makes it smell like a bouquet. This a great smelling oil."
How do your essential oils compare to the very popular "home party" ones?
What oil do you dilute the blends?

We believe our essential oils are of top quality and we post the GC/MS test results for each batch to back it up. Show them to your aromatherapist and see what they say. Most "home party" or network marketing oil companies won't release their GC/MS test results, and it kinda leaves you wondering "why?" When independent testing has been done, unfortunately the popular companies have not been blemish free. That's not to say it couldn't happen to any company on occasion, but I remember one case where one of the biggest companies was caught putting a synthetic into their peppermint oil to make it smell sweeter. That doesn't get in their by accident. So, be careful, and try not to only get your information from somebody who has a financial interest in you buying their oils - even us. Nobody knows everything and nobody is perfect despite what they might like to project. But we try to get the best, for a reasonable price.
