Pelargonium graveolens, Egypt, Steam distilled. A "woman's oil", Geranium seems to have a hormonal balancing effect and traditionally has been used (blended with Clary Sage) to alleviate problems associated with menopause and menstruation. Gunther writes that Geranium gives adrenal cortex support when ovarian estrogen decreases at menopause. It also acts as a diuretic. It can lower blood sugar, and should be avoided if you are hypoglycaemic. The word that comes to mind when I think of Geranium is "balance", physically, and especially for its emotional effects.
