Geranium (commonly known as Rose Geranium) is a strongly aromatic, evergreen shrub with small pink flowers and pointy leaves that is native to South Africa. Out of the many varieties of the plant, Pelargonium graveolens is the source of the essential oil.  This variety is NOT the familiar brightly colored geranium.  This variety is sometimes called Geranium Robert or “lemon plant” and is very often displayed in abundance in Greek restaurants.  The essential oil is widely used in aromatherapy and skin care, contains a number of beneficial compounds and shall I dare say, works profoundly on the emotions.
