Geranium Essential Oil

Geranium essential oil (Pelargonium graveolens) has been used since ancient times for supporting the body and mind. This oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowers. Young Living describes Geranium here:

Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) has a wonderfully uplifting, calming, flowery scent. It is excellent for the skin, and its aromatic influence helps release negative memories. Used traditionally to support the circulatory and nervous systems, a great deal of its strength lies in its ability to revitalize body tissues.* Geranium has an approximate ORAC of 1,010,011 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
