Rose Geranium Essential Oil

Geranium Essential Oil

Occasionally, you will find Geranium Essential Oil available with the botanical name Pelargonium roseum. It often goes by the name Rose Geranium Essential Oil. My understanding is that this species is nurtured to have a rosier aroma.

Rose Geranium Essential Oil Safety Information

Essential Oil Safety Edition 2 does not include a safety profile specific to Pelargonium roseum. The contraindications and safety precautions for Rose Geranium Oil are likely similar to those of traditional Geranium Essential Oil, but safety considerations are contingent upon the exact composition of the specific oil that you are working with.

General Safety Information

Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. For general dilution information, read AromaWeb's Guide to Diluting Essential Oils. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children and be sure to first read the recommended dilution ratios for children. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children, the elderly, if you have medical issues or are taking medications. Before using this or any essential oil, carefully read AromaWeb's Essential Oil Safety Information page. For in-depth information on oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.
