• GERANIUM ~ FUN FACTS & RECIPES

Geranium keeps ticks away

This time of year the number one question coming into our office is about which essential oil is the best for keeping ticks at bay. Books on the subject recommend Geranium. So we are taking a moment to share our outdoor spray recipe along with a few fun facts about Geranium.

As the full moon approaches in June we celebrate the Strawberry or Rose Moon. This full moon phase got its name from the indigenous people of North America and early Europeans who knew it as signaling the first harvest of the year, a sign to gather the ripening fruit and flowers, including Geranium. The coming full moon phase makes this a serendipitous time to talk about Geranium, as we head outside with our friends, family, and pets during the early months of summer. Geranium is distilled from the leaves of the Pelargonium graveolens plant. Widely used as an ingredient in perfumes throughout the world, it has a sweet floral smell similar to Rose. However, unlike Rose, this essential oil is extracted from the leaves and not the flowers. It's uplifting, mentally balancing, and helpful in relieving stress and anxiety. It's great for skin care because it helps to balance sebum.
