Aromatherapy with Geranium Essential Oil & a Goddess Essential Oil Blend Recipe
Geranium essential oil (Pelargonium graveolens) has very feminine energy and is nurturing and comforting. It is cooling, sedating, relaxing, balancing, and is fabulous for anxiety, stress, nervousness, and tension. Geranium essential oil is associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra as it may energetically regulate the adrenal glands and clear excess heat. It's empowering, boosts confidence and self-esteem, and resonates with Solar Plexus themes and functions. It can be used to alleviate PMS and menopausal symptoms and energetically regulate the reproductive system, making it a must-have women’s oil. It can also be used as an insect repellant during the hot summer months.
A Message from Geranium Essential Oil:
The message Geranium shares with us is to connect to goddess energy and the divine feminine. Focus on self-care and nurturing yourself by getting a massage, reading a good book, taking a day off of work, or allowing yourself to sleep in. Spend some time with your mother or grandmother if you are lucky enough to still have them in your life. Take a walk in nature and revel in the beauty of Mother Earth. Connect to the moon in the sky at night and infuse that energy into your aura and energy field. Meet up with your friends for coffee or cocktails or focus on rekindling old friendships or creating new ones. Wrap the goddess energy around you and let it embrace you.
Goddess Essential Oil Blend Recipe:
• 3 drops Jasmine
• 2 drops Rose
• 2 drops Clary Sage
• 2 drops Geranium
• 5 drops Neroli
Combine the essential oils together in an amber bottle and slightly swirl together to create a synergy. This blend is for inhalation via a diffuser, few drops on a cotton pad or tissue, or in an aroma inhaler. As you breathe in the aroma, state the following affirmations to yourself: "I invoke the goddess within. I am beautiful, nurturing, and worthy of love."
Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) essential oil is versatile, practical and effective in a wide variety of applications — from cleaners and detergents to lotions and body care products, to outdoor patio sprays. It is often compared to rose essential oil in its usage but its aroma is distinctly geranium — fresh, green and softly floral. The oil is also used in perfumery. Compared to other oils, it is relatively new to this realm, having only been used since the mid-19th century. Geranium essential oil is soft, warm and floral. It blends well with many other essential oils including lavender, patchouli, rose, sandalwood, jasmine, juniper, bergamot, neroli, clove, cinnamon, and ylang ylang. Geranium essential oil is considered a middle note.
