Geranium oil is probably best known for its lush floral scent, but did you know this oil also serves countless benefits for hair, skin, beauty and more?

If you’re looking for a new essential oil to add to your collection, we think geranium oil is a must-have. From DIY skin masks and hair treatments to everyday stress-relief, keep reading for 5 amazing ways to use geranium oil for health and wellness.

Geranium oil for skin

Geranium oil is widely known as one of the best oils to promote clear, healthy skin. Being a natural astringent, geranium oil is also perfect for anti-aging as it helps skin, tissues and muscles tighten and contract.

To prevent breakouts, simply add 1-2 drops of geranium oil to your facial moisturiser and apply as usual.

For spot treatments, apply geranium oil directly to the affected area after cleansing using a q-tip or cotton ball.

For anti-aging, create your own nourishing serum by filling a small amber bottle with a carrier oil like jojoba or rosehip, and add 4-5 drops of geranium oil. Massage gently into the skin each night after cleansing and moisturising.

Geranium oil for hair

Geranium oil is packed with antioxidants, which makes it ideal for repairing and strengthening damaged hair follicles and strands. Geranium oil also helps to balance the PH levels of the scalp to regulate sebum production.

Create your own moisturising hair mask by simply mixing 5-10 drops of geranium oil with ½ cup of coconut oil. Massage gently into hair from roots to ends, and leave to sit for 20-30 minutes before washing as usual.

You can also add a few drops of geranium oil to your regular shampoo to assist with deep-cleansing of the scalp.

Geranium oil for fragrance

Geranium oil is best known for its beautiful floral scent, which is why we love to use geranium oil for a natural fragrance!

Create your very own DIY perfume using a small roller bottle filled with 90 ml of a carrier oil like jojoba oil. Then, add 15 drops each of cedarwood oil, geranium oil and sage oil for a light, floral and fresh everyday fragrance.

Geranium oil for stress relief

Geranium oil is also known for its calming and grounding properties. To help reduce stress, tension and anxiety, diffuse geranium oil throughout your home or workspace using an essential oil diffuser. Or, add a few drops of geranium oil to your favourite aromatherapy jewellery to carry with you on the go.

Geranium oil for insect repellant

Not just a beauty staple, geranium oil can also help you keep your home pest-free, too! Geranium oil can help to repel small insects like fleas, mosquitoes, cockroaches, ants and ticks. Fill a spray bottle with distilled water and add a few drops of geranium oil for your very own natural insect repellent.
