Where is it sourced?
Geranium oil is steam-distilled from the leaves of the geranium plant. Our oil comes from Egypt, where the botanicals are grown by the river Nile.
Like any essential oil, geranium essential oil should never be used undiluted as it can result in skin irritation and burns. It can cause skin irritation to sensitive skin. It is best to stay away from using this oil during the first trimester months of pregnancy. Also, people who suffer from migraines should use them sparingly.
