Rose Geranium or Scientific name — Pelargonium Graveolens is a type of geranium plant with leaves that smell strongly like roses.
A preliminary study published in the Iranian Journal of Microbiology in 2012 found that rose geranium essential oil may act as an antimicrobial (a substance that destroys or suppresses the growth of microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi)
The scent of rose from the rose flower has proved to enhance relaxation, offer pain relief, and soothe anxiety in a clinical setting.
Anecdotally, some people believe that since rose geranium smells like roses, it can have the same impact on you when you inhale its essential oil.
Rose geranium oil can be used in a diffuser, inhaled, added to a warm bath, or mixed with a carrier oil and applied topically.
Antioxidants are well-established as natural agents for improving your skin’s ability to heal itself from environmental toxins and exposure.
Rose geranium essential oil also can be inhaled after sprinkling a few drops of the oil onto a cloth or tissue.
Geranium essential oil and Rose Geranium essential oil both come from P. graveolens – they are just from different varieties; the full botanical name of “Rose” Geranium is Pelargonium graveolens var. Roseum while “regular” Geranium is just known as Pelargonium graveolens They have almost exactly the same properties and actions although many people prefer the fragrance of rose geranium. The name “Rose Geranium” was traditionally applied to the essential oil extracted from a specific cultivar of geranium, known as Geranium Bourbon.
