ABOUT THE OIL

There are in fact two species of Pelargonium distilled to essential oil - this 'odorantissium' produces Rose Geranium oil, high in geraniol with a more rose-like aroma. The 'graveolens' species produces an oil with a higher citronellol content, with a correspondingly citrus-like aroma. This essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of wild grown Rose Geranium plants grown in Albania.

Aromatherapy Notes

This Rose Geranium has a light, honeyed top note, complex floral middle notes entwined with deeply sweet and slightly cinnamon-spiced undertones.
