Product Description

Geranium Bourbon has a rich, rosy aroma often preferred by aromatherapists to other varieties of Geranium oil. A balancing effect on mind and body, particularly useful for menstrual problems.

Geranium Essential Oil

Geranium Bourbon essential oil comes from the island, and former french colony, of La Réunion in the Indian Ocean. The island was formerly known as Île de Bourbon, which is where the name comes from.

Although it has the same therapeutic properties as other types of Geranium essential oil, it is preferred by many aromatherapists because of it superior fragrance and because it blends so well with a vast array of other oils.
