This lovely organic oil is distilled in South Africa from the leaves of the plant. I especially like to add it to my blends for diffusing as it has a beautiful aroma reminiscent of roses, but without the high cost. It is known to be cooling and relaxing to the nerves. Geranium oil opens the heart and is grounding at the same time. It is analgesic, antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral and astringent. It is a wonderful addition to any essential oil collection. It is another of my favorites.
