Geranium is known for its use in perfumes and skin care products, but its healing properties have been emphasized in the treatment of stress, high blood pressure, accelerated pulse, anxiety and during labor contractions.
Geranium oil (Pelargonium) has a long list of medicinal properties that include reducing inflammation and having a multifaceted effect against fungal infections. Oil relieves anxiety, stabilizes emotions, helps with birth pains and contractions, lowers high blood pressure and accelerates heart rate.
Geranium also affects the elimination of excess water from the body, relieves lymph congestion and sore throat.
When used topically it has a positive effect on cracked capillaries, bruises and peripheral circulation disorders. It soothes the skin after insect bites, burns or minor wounds.
When used in aromatherapy or meditation, geranium essential oil elevates the spirit while relieving nervous tension. This can help alleviate the fear of abandonment or commitment, and it can also assist in the self-acceptance process.
