When it comes to beauty essential oils, geranium essential oils must be emphasized, and it is also a "woman's essential oil." Compared with roses, geraniums are more likely to be harvested, so they are relatively cheap and their odor and efficacy are similar to roses, and can be considered as a substitution for roses.
The geranium is about 60 cm long. The flower is pink and the tip of the leaf is pointed and serrated. The essential oil is derived from the distillate leaves. It tastes like a rose, so it is often called the “Roses for Poor People”.
Geranium has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antioxidant properties making it great for skin and hair care. It is used for balancing hormones, menopause, losing weight, menstrual pain & skin care, and it can also be used as treating acne and tightening facial skin to reduce wrinkles.

Geranium is suitable for almost all skin types because it balances sebum secretion and makes the skin plump. It may be beneficial for eczema, burns, herpes zoster, herpes, warts, and frostbite.
