One of the main properties of Geranium essential oil is its ability to improve various skin conditions and also improve circulation. Therefore when used in Aromatherapy, it is a good oil to help alleviate such conditions as chillblains, bruising and cellulite. When using Geranium oil in massage, it can help to relieve the symptoms of PMT, menopause and Menorrhagia due to its balancing nature.

The oil has a wonderful floral and perfumed fragrance, so it's an ideal oil to use in your oil burner or oil diffuser if you want to impart a fragrant and flowery aroma to any room. It can be used with a blend of other oils such as Lavender oil and Citronella oil to make an insect repellant formula.
