When William Shakespeare wrote "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet", he might have been talking about Egyptian Rose Geranium.
The Egyptian Rose Geranium can be described in one word as ‘exquisite’. The use of geranium dates all the way back to ancient Egypt, where Egyptians used it to care for their skin . Today rose geranium essential oil is often used holistically to care for various aspects of physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
This essential oil is distilled from the flowers of the Pelargonium roseum and has a sweet, floral and green herbaceous scent. It is well known for its balancing effect both physically and emotionally.
When applied topically on the skin, it is soothing to the skin and reputed for it's anti-ageing benefits
With its sweet and uplifting floral aroma, diffusing this oil helps to reduce mental stress and rid the mind of negative thoughts.
