Product benefits & How to use:
- Acne, dermatitis, and inflammatory skin conditions
A 2017 review of studies on geranium essential oil indicated that its antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antiseptic properties make it beneficial for reducing acne breakouts, skin irritation, and skin infections when applied topically.
- Nasal vestibulitis
Nasal vestibulitis is an uncomfortable condition associated with cancer drug treatment. A small observational study and anecdotal evidence suggests geranium essential oil may ease nasal symptoms caused by this condition, such as bleeding, scabbing, pain, dryness, and sores.
Multiple studies suggest geranium essential oil may fight off bacterial infections. Geranium essential oil has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, making it effective against multiple bacterial strains.
- Neurodegenerative disease
Certain neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are associated with varying degrees of neuro-inflammation. A study found that high concentrations of citronellol, a component of geranium essential oil, inhibited nitric oxide production, reducing inflammation and cell death in the brain. According to researchers, geranium essential oil might have benefits for people with neurodegenerative diseases that include neuro-inflammation.
- Menopause and peri-menopause
A study found that aromatherapy with geranium essential oil was beneficial at stimulating secretion of salivary oestrogen. Researchers theorised that geranium essential oil might be of value for women experiencing reduced oestrogen and health-related symptoms caused by menopause and peri-menopause.
- Shingles pain
Shingles often result in post herpetic neuralgia, a very painful condition affecting the nerve fibres and skin that run along a nerve. One study found that topical application of geranium oil significantly reduced post herpetic neuralgia pain within minutes of application. These effects were temporary, and required reapplication as needed.
Geranium essential oil has long been used in Tunisia as a folk remedy treatment to reduce hyperglycaemia.
