Volume 1: Principles and Profiles, geranium essential oil nourishes the blood and regulates menstruation and menopause. It promotes emotional stability and calm as it works as a nervous system relaxant for anxiety. This oil is particularly good at regulation and restoration. Geranium addresses many female hormone issues by balancing estrogen and progesterone deficiency. It regulates and restores the adrenal and cortisol function, thus managing stress, alleviating fatigue, salt cravings, afternoon energy slumps, and menopausal symptoms. It has the ability to affect blood sugar balance and acts as a lymphatic and liver decongestant and detoxifier as well as helping with high blood cholesterol. It is also an anti-inflammatory.

#3 Skincare

Geranium oil is an astringent. It has the ability to minimize the look of wrinkles as it tightens facial skin and slows down the effects of aging. It’s my secret weapon to aging! Add two drops of geranium oil to an unscented organic lotion or mix with apricot kernel oil and apply it twice daily. After a week or two, you will see the look of your wrinkles begin to fade away.

#4 Hormone Balancing

This is where geranium oil works best with an overall balancing blend no matter what stage of life you are in.
