Geranium oil is a special gift for women because of its balancing effects on menstrual cycle. It is balancing, calming and anti-depressive. It was used by the Egyptians to promote beautiful, radiant-looking skin. In the Victorian era, fresh geranium leaves were placed at formal dining tables as decorative pieces and to be consumed as a fresh sprig if desired; in fact, the edible leaves and flowers of the plant are often used in desserts, cakes, jellies, and teas. Today this potent oil is often used in high-end perfumes, clear skin and healthy hair care products.
