About Geranium:

The variety of Geranium’s properties give it a wealth of beneficial uses. It has been used to soothe inflammation, irritated skin, bruises and even burns. Some report it has a balancing effect on sebum production that makes it great for acne as well as both dry and oily skin problems. Due to its analgesic characteristics it is often used as a topical agent for individuals suffering with arthritis or rheumatism. Geranium stimulates the immune system, aids in poor circulation, and is anti-mucolytic.

It has a pleasing aroma, is uplifting to the mood, and has a calming effect on the nervous system that is pronounced. It may be applied directly to the skin, diluted for an ointment or used with a diffuser.

    Hi there! I’ve also been researching Geranium & was so excited to receive my doTERRA order so I could try it on my acne. When I opened the bottle I took a whiff & it smelled similar to paint thinner, I tried to put it on my neck(I get pimples here by my hairline) but the smell was so strong that i had t wash it off. I was so bummed!! Is this something that is normal or does the smell fade within a period of time? I’m not usually sensitive to oil smells so this one caught me off guard but I REALLY want to use it!! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

      Geranium oil does have a pungent smell no doubt. I’ve used it before on my face for skin problems and disliked the smell also. However the benefits of this oil make it worth smelling like a stinky flower for a little bit. The smell does disopate after a short while. You just have to tough it out for a few minutes ….meanwhile you can’t get away from yourself! Lol
