Geranium Essential Oil (Egypt)

Geranium Essential Oil (Egypt) (Pelargonium graveolens) is a good, therapeutic quality essential oil steam distilled from the leaves and flowers. It is our most economical choice for Geranium essential oil and although the aroma does not have the same exquisite rose notes as our pricier choices (Geranium Bourbon and Rose Geranium) it is still quite nice, with sweet, floral notes, and a great value for the price.

Geranium essential oil is also distilled from several other species of Pelargonium but graveolens is our favorite.

OVERVIEW

Geranium essential oil is often described as “uplifting” in aromatherapy references, a property that many other floral essential oils are said to share, perhaps because floral aromas remind us of gardens, summer time and romance. Most aromatherapists also describe it as “relaxing”, although it has been noted that some people will experience it as mildly stimulating instead. The best way to know how you will respond to an aroma is to smell it. Geranium is a scent that has often been used in perfumes and products like soap so you may have personal associations to the aroma that come into play in determining how it effects you.

HISTORICAL USES

Pelargonium graveolens was not widely used as an herb in European folk medicine but various Pelargonium species have been employed by folk healers in other countries. In it’s native range in Africa, for example, tribal people used herbal preparations of the Pelargoniums in cases of dysentery and respiratory problems.

A lot of the information about Geranium  essential oil that is found in some modern aromatherapy books has been inappropriately taken from entries in old herbal references for the plant known commonly as “Herb Robert”, which  is a so-called “true” geranium and has the botanical name “Geranium robertianum”. Herb Robert is a completely different plant than the Pelargonium species used to produce Geranium essential oil and the properties should never have been generalized from one to the other. Herb Robert was sometimes referred to by the old herbalists by the common name “Death Comes Quickly”; while I’m not sure what that was all about, it doesn’t sound good and I’m glad our essential oil comes from a different plant!

Modern practitioners of Chinese Medicine have described Geranium essential oil as a Yin tonic and have suggested that it can be helpful during menopause.

SAFETY

Geranium essential oil has been classified as a strong skin sensitizing agent by the European Union. However, Tisserand and Young reviewed studies on this issue and state in their 2014 Essential Oil Safety:Second Edition that they have concluded that Geranium essential oil poses a low risk of causing sensitization reactions when used topically. Do not exceed 1.5% concentration in vegetable oil for topical use, avoid frequent topical use, and do not use on damaged, sensitive or irritated skin.

Some authors recommend avoiding this oil in pregnancy and in the presence of estrogen-dependent cancers/conditions; these recommendations are not found in Tisserand and Young’s Essential Oil Safety: Second Edition (2014).

There is a significant risk for drug interactions between Geranium essential oil used by the oral route and diabetic medication as well as medications such as cyclophosphamide that are metabolized by CYP2B6 enzymes. We strongly caution against oral use of any essential oil.
