A fragrant floral wonder! Geranium will lift your mood and treat your skin.
What is geranium?
Pelargonium graveolens, a leafy shrub native to South Africa, isn’t the popular window-box geranium but is part of the same big family of Geraniaceae. It is commonly called rose geranium or sweet-scented geranium in reference to the strong floral scent diffused by its incised and velvety, fragrant leaves.
Why do we love geraniums so much?
- The scent is sweet and rose-like, it lifts the mood and can relieve anxiety.
- The oil is toning, antiseptic and astringent, which helps clear and mattify the skin while balancing sebum production.
Did you know?
Rose and geranium oils have very similar aromatic profiles and some chemical constituents in common depending on the variety. This is why they are often used together, enhancing and supporting each other's scent.
Where does Lush source geranium from?
Lush purchases geranium oil from Egypt and Kenya. The type grown in Kenya is of a premium quality known as Bourbon, and it is grown sustainably, without the use of chemicals.
