Essence of the Week: Rose Geranium

Rose Geranium is an aromatic evergreen shrub from Egypt whose name comes from the Latin word graveolens, which means "highly scented". The blossoms of the Rose Geranium are smaller than the common Geranium plant, and are composed of five fused petals, reminding us of our Divinity each time we invite her into our senses.

Rose Geranium is amazing for the skin. She has been researched intensively for her ability to mend the epidermis, support healing severe dermatological issues, and regenerating the tissues. She can also be used for bruises, burns, broken capillaries, wrinkles, eczema, lice, ringworm, insect bites, and post plastic surgery healing. Rose Geranium is an immune stimulant and hormone balancer. She works well as a pain reliever, and she is wonderful for rheumatism and other arthritic conditions. When not feeling well, Rose Geranium can ease a sore throat, help with asthma flare-ups, and clear excess mucus from the body. She is wonderful for circulation, helps hemorrhoids, and is a natural anti-coagulant. For digestion, Rose Geranium cleans the entire tract and helps with colitis, jaundice, gastric ulcers, and tones the liver and kidneys. She is good for the nervous system and helps with neuralgia. She supports women going through menopause, PMS, and other reproductive imbalances.

For the energy body, Rose Geranium is a deep heart-healer. She supports big transitions and changes in life. Her plant power reminds us that we are strong and courageous in the moments that we feel the weakest. When you are ready to leave the fears behind and embrace a new reality in life, bring Rose Geranium with you for support. She is a great reminder that the flow of life helps us bloom into our greatness.

We look forward to anointing with Rose Geranium all week in class. Check out Sacred Scents Aromatherapy to learn more and order a bottle of Rose Geranium for balance and harmony and opening the heart.
