The species of geranium used for essential oil include P. radula, P. roseum, P. odoratissimum, P. capita tum, and P. graveolens, the latter also known as rose-scented geranium. Most is grown in Northern Africa, Reunion (India), Madagascar, China, Russia, or India, though some is sourced from Italy, Corsica, Spain and France. Records show that it has been cultivated since the middle ages, but there is little record of any medicinal use of geranium in history until it was first distilled in 1819. It was not thoroughly researched for medicinal purposes until almost thirty years later.
There is a very small window, just prior to flowering, in which to harvest the leaves. More than a ton of plant matter is required to create just one kilo (2.2 pounds) of essential oil, and for this reason it is very expensive. Because of this, it is often adulterated with artificial esters or blended with other essential oils like lemongrass or cedarwood. You must always take care to avoid a lesser quality product, as it will have little therapeutic value.
Geranium essential oil is known as the “first aid kit in a bottle.” Once you understand all of its various benefits you will probably want to keep some handy at all times.
