Geranium: The Scent Of Good Moods And Great Vibes
Stop and smell the roses, they say. For one, it’s an excellent way to uplift your mood almost instantly! As far as essential oils are concerned, however, the rose can be quite expensive and indulgent. So, why not try an alternative which is just as good, and some say, better, in terms of scent and usability? Behold the geranium, also known as the poor man’s rose.
Native to South Africa, geraniums are a hit in the perfume industry today, often substituting the more expensive and luxurious rose. In aromatherapy, one will find that geranium essential oil produces a calming, uplifting and strengthening effect, particularly during times of anxiousness.

The Differences Between Geranium And Rose Geranium
Is there a difference between geranium oil and rose geranium oil, or are they the same? In terms of scent, there are almost the same, actually, although true enthusiasts will argue that they do not. In terms of components, they are indeed similar, owing to the fact that both are from the Pelargonium graveolens plant, but they are from different varieties. Rose geranium has the full botanical name Pelargonium graveolens var. Roseum while geranium oil is simply known as Pelargonium graveolens.
