Ingredient Spotlight: Rose Geranium Essential Oil

Originally originating in beautiful South Africa, the Pelargonium graveolens plant then spread to Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco. The uplifting citrus and rose scent of this oil makes it a favorite for helping to balance mind, body and spirit.

The oil is obtained through steam distillation after being extracted from the leaves and stalks. If the oil is produced from the young green leaves it has a milder scent than if it is produced when the leaves mature and start turning yellow. The yellow leaves produce a more intense aroma.
