Aroma: This is a must have oil for every woman who enjoys the smell of rose. This oil is often referred to as the "poor man's rose" as well. It has a lovely bouquet that is sweet and reminiscent of a beautiful rose garden with hints of citrus. This oil also has a very faint herbaceous smell which I do not normally find in an Egyptian Geranium. This specimen is elegant and sophisticated with all the right nuances that keep me coming back for more.
Personal Notes: I use this essential oil frequently for hormonal concerns that women have. It is a wonderful oil that can aid in balancing, cooling, and sometimes working through transitions. Additionally, I have found that it can be an uplifting oil that blends well with grapefruit and grounding oils like Cedarwood and Alligator Juniper.
Safety Data: This is essential oil is considered non-toxic and generally safe if used properly.
Usage ideas: Create your own uplifting and balancing blend for diffusing.
