Geranium Hydrosol

Geranium Hydrosol smells much more like a diluted version of its corresponding essential oil than a number of other hydrosols. It is floral, fresh, sweet, with a fruity note.

Botanical Name: Pelargonum graveolens

Aromatic Strength: Medium-Strong

Shelf Life: Up to 1 year if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications: Suzanne Catty states that Geranium Hydrosol is helpful for all skin types and can balance dry, oily and sensitive skin. Catty also reports that it is helpful for wounds and cuts and can help stop bleeding. It is humectant (attracts moisture), anti-inflammatory and is cooling and useful for burns, rashes and insect bites. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 119.]

Len and Shirley Price report that the Geranium Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of approximately 30-45% alcohols and 39-42% ketones and possesses the following properties: "analgesic, anticoagulant, antiinfectious, antiinflammatory, antiviral, bactericidal, calming, cicatrizant, decongestant, digestive, expectorant, lipolytic, mucolytic, sedative, stimulant." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 130.]

Jeanne Rose adds that Geranium Hydrosol is helps regenerate cells when used topically in skin care, balances oil glands, is useful for hot flashes and acts as an antidepressant. [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 174.]
