Oil Summary: Probably the best quality geranium essential oil comes from the Reunion Islands in the Indian Ocean. This type of geranium oil is also called Bourbon Geranium or Rose Geranium, as the island itself used to be called Ile de Bourbon. This variety has a greener, grassier and even more herbaceous aroma with a rosy, slightly minty note. Because of this, Rose Geranium oil is the preferred variety for many Aromatherapists. The color is lighter than the Egyptian variety, and it presents similarly as a pale yellowish-green lightweight liquid. For many, the Indian variety is the standard by which all other geranium oils are judged, and it is because of that, this particular cultivar has been planted in other parts of the world, including Egypt, Madagascar and parts of Northern Africa.
