Geranium essence is very similar in smell to rose essence. Their properties on the feminine genital apparatus are also very alike. Hormonal and uterine tonic, both Rose and Geranium help women during delivery as well as in menopause.
The superiority of rose essential oil in beauty and in power of spirit in clear, but Geranium can be a good substitute to Rose when price is a problem for a fragrance.
Nevertheless Geranium has some unique qualities that confers it a lifesaving value that rose does not have.
It possesses the rare property of being “cortisone-like” and therefore it quickly neutralizes most allergic reactions. This property however is not the most stunning one, this essence is able to decongest rapidly and in depth the gravest inflammations: you can notice its effect on acute cases within 20 minutes.
Its scent is tonic and invigorative scent finds application in women psychological disturbs, such as anxiety, depression, lack of self-confidence and stress that causes lack of appetite.
This “essence of women” is very much underestimated. How could this humble peasant flower compete with the princely rose, but it is this very humility that brings to the reach of all women the wonderful property of the rose essence, too expensive for most people to afford.
