PORTRAIT

You will want to enjoy the delicate fragrance of this oil—the favorite geranium of our master blender, Deb Stoltzfus. When hormones wreak havoc, calm them with the assistance of Inshanti’s pure geranium bourbon essential oil. Let it ease your nervous tension and stress, lift your spirits, and open you up to new possibilities. The oil also helps to create balance between oily and dry skin by regulating the sebum production of the skin. This very gentle oil, imported from Madagascar, can be used by almost everybody, anywhere, anytime.

We carry two geranium oils here at Inshanti—geranium and geranium bourbon. Both oils offer the same therapeutic benefits, but because they are different plant varieties from different regions of Africa, they have differing aromas. Geranium oil is imported from either South Africa or Egypt and will have the stronger rose scent, which is why it is sometimes referred to as rose geranium. Geranium bourbon is a rarer oil (and thus more expensive) extracted from a hybrid plant grown in Madagascar and has a daintier, less pungent aroma.
