Description: Geranium Egyptian plant is a hairy perennial shrub, often used in hedgerows, and will stand up to about one meter high (3 feet) with pointed leaves that are serrated at the edges and pinkish-white flowers. The leaves are used with the blossoms to produce this concentrate, which indicates that the plants were at their peak when harvested. The oil was then obtained through food-grade solvent extraction.
Color: Dark, leafy green liquid.
Common Uses: Perfumery.
Consistency: Thin to medium viscosity.
Strength of Aroma: Strong.
Aromatic Scent: Geranium Leaf Absolute has a scent that is both sweet and herbaceous, while carrying some subtle notes similar to those of Rose Geranium.
History: The plant originated in South Africa and migrated to Reunion, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco. The plants were introduced to European countries such as Italy, Spain and France in the 17th century. In early times geraniums were planted around the house to help keep evil spirits at bay.
Cautions: Non-toxic, non-irritant and generally non-sensitizing, it can cause sensitivity in some people. It should be avoided during pregnancy.
It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance - particularly the rare and exotic notes - becomes lost.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
