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.

"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."
Isn't this the essential oil you can use with a drop between a dog's ears and it will keep ticks from latching on to the pet??

Many holistic vet resources do suggest that Rose Geranium can be used for canine application. But we suggest speaking with your holistic vet prior to using with your animal.
