Healing and Calming Rose Geranium

Rose Geranium Flower

Many years ago, I discovered that Rose Geranium is a powerful healing medicinal plant. At the time I was going through a divorce, was pregnant and incredibly stressed. I found out that Rose Geranium is one of the few essential oils one can use  when pregnant. I soon learnt to immerse myself in a warm bath filled with Rose Geranium leaves. Globules of oil floated on the surface of the water. It was a life saver. I grew to love this plant and what it did for me.

Another example of when I used Rose Geranium successfully was when my son accidentally poured boiling water onto his chest. The first thing I did was put ice onto the burn, after 20 mins the ice seemed to have no effect and his skin started to wrinkle. Fortunately, I remembered that Rose Geranium soothes and heals burns. I poured the oil onto his chest and within 5 mins the pain started to ease, and the skin started to smooth out. Within 20 mins there was no more pain. It was incredible to witness how this essential oil healed the burn so quickly and efficiently, leaving no scars.

I renamed this plant and called it The African Lavender. It has similar properties and characters to its well-known Mediterranean cousin, Lavender augustifolia.

 Rose Geranium oil has the following properties:

Anti-bacterial, antioxidant, anti-fungal. an analgesic, an astringent, a mild anti-depressant, a coagulant / haemostatic, cicatrisant, and a diuretic

 During these trying times of the COVID 19 pandemic in 2020. It is a great oil to have around your home to assist in stress relief as one of its main characteristics is its calming and soothing properties.

  • I love using Southern Immortelle when my sinuses block up. Just a few drops on a tissue which I breathe in every now and then. This helps to unblock my nose and clear my head.

  • Over the past few months, I have been using Artemisia Tincture with very good results. I helps clear up my chest if I feel a cough coming on, I have been using it for healing my gums which sometimes get swollen. It has many properties and has many different uses.

  • I have used Balbine Balm for many years and find it wonderful to have in my healing cupboard. I use it for my skin whether it be for cuts, mossie bites, or I use it on my face as a moisturizer. Balbine Balm is a very good healing cream. Thank you Megan for developing this product I make sure I am never without it.
