Product Abstract: Geranium plants originated in South Africa, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco and were introduced to European countries in the 17th century. There are over 200 species of geranium, of which some are scented and some not. This Geranium Bourbon (Pelargonium graveolens) is a variety by the name of Pelargonium graveolens L. Her. Originally from the Cape, it is now cultivated in India and China. It produces a better quality oil that is used to extend Rose oils. The petals are used in gourmet jellies and confections, and the oil is widely used in scented topical applications.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
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.

Rating: Absolutely DIVINE & exactly for what I have been searching!!! I cannot wait to try this in CP and WILL be repurchasing again...along with Egyptian Geranium.
I'm curious to smell the difference.
I have Rose Geranium and THAT is the one that smells like straight up roses. If you are searching for a 'cheaper' version of Rose EO and do not want to purchase the absolute, then purchase Rose Geranium...not Bourbon Geranium and not, I'm taking an educated guess here, Egyptian Geranium.
Always, always look at the Botanical Names in Latin people! They are your guide!
Rating: I have a hard time getting over the scent in this essential oil. It doesn't smell floral to me. It is a hard scent to cover so I don't like even using it for it's skin benefits because I end up disliking any lotions or face washes that I use it in. On the other hand my husband likes the scent so I know it is just a personal preference.

Rating: This is one of my must have on the shelf at all times. If you have ANY hormonal issues, you really must try this particular Geranium. It is rich, deep and a little goes a long way. I could talk about this one forever, but I'll just say "Try it" and you'll be hooked.

Rating: Exquisite scent. I used it in lip balms about 3 years ago, still have one and the scent is still strong and beautiful.

Rating: This is my most prized essential oil and absolutely worth the price! This essential oil is part of my daily face wash routine and the key ingredient to keeping my skin free of pimples and young-looking. Geranium oil is known to balance hormones and definitely keeps my facial skin in check. I recommend trying a drop or two in your own homemade face wash and seeing where it takes you from there :) 100% satisfied and will keep coming back for more!

Rating: This is my first time shopping at ND. I love the scent of ND's geranium EO. This is one of my flavour essential oils. All you need is a few drops in the diffuser. ND has the high quality of EO with great price. Fast shipping. Highly recommend to everyone.

Rating: i'm really not a fan of this one. i bought it reading all the great reviews and i read that it mixes well with some of the other oils i have. i really dont think i like it it was not what i was expecting. i bought the rose geranium oil as well. that one is a little better. it has more of the floral scent i was looking for.
Rating: Perfectly balanced Geranium. Not too floral or perfumey. Has great "green" undertones like a Spanish Lavender and blends really well with that oil and some Rose hydrosol for a refreshing facial toner. Another popular brand available in stores hardly compares to this one.

Rating: This fragrance is the perfect balance of floral and green. The word that springs to mind is "fresh". However, it could overpower other aromas in an oil blend so start slow.
By:Laura, Lakeville, Massachusetts Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Mar-2009
Rating: Smells wonderful! I also like to put a few drops in my body and face lotion/creams.

Rating: This is such a nice essential oil! It smells terrific. When I made my MP soap with a bit of it, everyone was woundering what smelled so nice in the house.

Rating: i have been putting a few drops of this in my bathwater for its uplifting qualities. i love this one mixed with a couple drops of chamomile. close the bathroom door and breathe deeply!
Rating: This is my first experience with a Geranium and I find it very pleasant. I need to research it a bit more to discover its qualities.
By:Coletta, Streetsboro, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Aug-2008
Rating: I like geranium E.O. few drops in your body lotion and your cream is also good as for an insect repellent and you will smell good
By:Marie, Gatineau, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Absolutely yummy! This seems sweeter and more floral-y (rather than fresh) than the geranium Egyptian.
By:Judith, Reisterstown, Maryland Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Mar-2006
Rating: Marvelous! This is the best smelling Geranium I have ever come across. This essential oil has a multitude of benefits in skin care as well!
By:Karen, Spring Hill, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Dec-2007
Rating: One of my favorite oils, and this one is outstanding. Geranium inspires calm alertness. I use it when I need to be at 100 percent, mentally and physically. NDA's Geranium Bourbon is excellent.

Rating: Lovely! When I read that geranium is often used to replace rose because of a similar scent and cheaper price, I was anxious to get some! This stuff is wonderful- I plan to make some romantic geranium and ylang ylang combos which this will be simply devine in!
By:Stephanie, Cochrane, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I use this essential oil to make my face cream, geranium can make skin firmer and look younger! It is very strong so only 1 to 2 drops is enough for one use (face and neck).
By:Min, Brossard, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is a really stimulating floral scent that is known for balancing hormonal imbalances. It is also one of my favorites for perfume making.
New Directions is the best quality you will find for ANY EO but I really do love their Geranium in comparassion to others - I just tossed about half a bottle of another brand after opening this from ND!

Rating: The price and quality of this essential oil make it a must buy.
