Make a BRIGHTENING GERANIUM ROLLER: 15 drops Geranium + 15 drops Frankincense + 10 drops Sandalwood + 2 drops Lemon & top off with your fave carrier oil for your skintype - we prefer moringa or jojoba. We also use it from time to time as a natural perfume replacement when we need a quick pick-me-up on wrists + neck before meetings or before heading to dinner. 𝟐 | 𝗜𝗡 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗕𝗔𝗧𝗛 The bath is also a perfect place for Geranium. It’s safe for the skin, and 5 to 10 drops added to warm water is an ultra-feminine way to unwind after a long day. We’ll usually sip on a small glass of red wine or Ningxia Red while enjoying our dreamy Geranium bath. 𝟑 | 𝗜𝗡 𝗔 𝗗𝗜𝗙𝗙𝗨𝗦𝗘𝗥 When used aromatically, Geranium can help release negative memories + ease nervous tension. It balances the emotions, lifts the spirit, and fosters peace. It promotes a healthy sense of well-being, and feelings of hope.
