I absolutely LOVE this Rose Geranium oil. I use it in my Anti-aging facial moisturizer and in my Rose scented body products along with just a couple drops of rose absolute. Gives the rose scent at an affordable price as well as giving some of the same therapeutic benefits of rose as well.

#1 I have always been impressed with the quality of all your products especially the essential and fragrance oils - your variety is outstanding! #2 I purchased your rose geranium essential oil and the scent is feminine serenity. I mixed 5 drops with 1 cup cornstarch, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and mixed all in a zip bag. After 4 days I had a morning body powder of gentle delight. Can't wait to blend it in a shower gel, maybe grapefruit and bitter orange. Always enjoy your reviews, good hints!

This oil smells just as I had imagined...like roses and geraniums. It reminds me of sitting on my grandmother's porch when her flowers were in full bloom. Lovely.

An absolutely beautiful oil. I have yet to find a problem in terms of mixing with other oil, and can easily act as a stand alone oil. I ordered the smallest bottle and plan on getting more. Absolutely wonderful. I also made a lotion with it when my sister was having a rough monthly visit from her friend. She said it helped her. She felt a bit more grounded and relaxed. Cross your fingers for next month as I tend to take the brunt.

A lovely Rose Geranium, works perfectly in perfumery where you want a gentle bridge to help the notes to meld. Lavender is great for this, but when you want a more floral tone Rose geranium is perfect. Blends beautifully w/ many oils & stands well by itself. Very emotionally uplifting.

This scent was strong and very rose like. If you need a substitute to rose at steep discounts, look no further.

A beautiful scent when blended with other eo's such as Roswood, it can bring out the other blends so well, giving it just the right amount of floral scent (without having to buy the more expensive eo's such as rose absolute.

This is one of my absolute favorite scents, and I am very impressed with the quality from NDA. The smell is a perfect blend of rose and geranium, and is perfect by itself or with other EO's. I will buy an even bigger bottle next time...

This is just as wondeful as I thought it would be, although I must say I am a geranium lover! The sweetness of the rose scent is beautifully balanced with the greeness of the geranium. Perhaps a little less cloying than straight up rose. Very uplifting and a "feel good" scent that will soften with wear. Can't wait to use it in the bath!

I make it into a simple and wonderful mist... i use a small spray bottle and fill with water... add 3 drops Eucalyptus, 5 drops Rose Geranium and 4-5 drops lemon... its refreshing, calming, soothing and reviving all at the same time! I am going to be buying this again!

This is a great oil. I love the geranium smell. It really doesn't smell very "rosey" to me, though I haven't tried any other geranium yet so nothing to compare to. I use it in room spray, toner, & PMS bath soak. Nice for balance and emotionaly uplifting. I can't wait to try more ND oils! I love every one I have tried so far!

Got my shipment very fast~ great delivery service! This is my first time smelling rose geranium S. Africa...... I would say that it's a beautiful flora and citrus-ish scent. :) One of my new favorites! I now understand why people say it's sometimes used to extend the rose scent. Rose geranium is floral at the same time "energetic"? It has that crispness that most floral scents don't. Be careful to scent it in tiny amounts since it can easily become overwhelming.

This has a very interesting quality. I first thought it was too subtle but I agree with the other reviewer, it does have a depth to it. It's fresh and layered, very relaxing too. I'm very happy with the quality.

The scent is similar to Geranium, but not as heady and strong and it has something else, depth... can't quite put my finger on it. Nice oil.
