If you’re like me, you’re a sucker for rose scents. And if you’re like me, you also wouldn’t have known about rose geranium until fairly recently (or maybe until you read this post!). This fragrant essential oil smells like a gorgeous mix of citrus and rose, and is known for alleviating stress and anxiety. Use it as a massage oil before yoga, meditation, or sleep, or add a few drops into your next bath to feel super calm and relaxed.
1. Skin Healer
Rose geranium oil is great for treating skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, dermatitis, and rashes. It can also be used as a spot treatment to fade away scars. Apply to your face after washing with your favourite cleanser.
Rose geranium is excellent at hydrating skin. This essential oil also tightens the skin, preventing premature aging. Simply add a few drops to your moisturizer (we like Fresh's Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream) or directly to your skin (tested on a patch first) to see glowing, firm skin in no time!
3. Kills Bacteria
Since rose geranium has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, it protects wounds and injuries on your skin from fungi and bacteria. So go ahead, wear those shorts, flash some skin, and tan on the beach worry-free with a bottle of rose geranium oil.
4. Metabolism Booster
How many countless ways have you tried to boost your metabolism to no avail? Rose geranium will be your new superhero oil. It contains cytophylactic properties, meaning it helps improve your metabolism. This oil aids in the recycling of dead cells in your body, which is crucial for new body cells to grow and for overall body health.
