Масло од сардела (геранија)

It is thought to have a balancing effect on the nervous system, sebum production and circulation.
The finest type of geranium oil is geranium bourbon, cultivated on the Reunion Islands in the Indian Ocean. It has a rich, rosy aroma and is grown there because of the perfect climate conditions. Geranium Bourbon costs at least Â£10 more per kilo than the regular variety.
Geranium oil has a sweet, beautifully floral and slightly sharp fragrance.
Aromatherapists have used it widely for its antiseptic and astringent qualities and which is useful in skin products. The astringency of the oil (the ability to constrict tissues) can make geranium helpful for flushed skins with high colour and it's also often recommended for oily, pale or sluggish skins.
The pale green oil is steam distilled from the whole plant (leaves, twigs and flowers) and it has a rich, green, rose-like aroma. The main constituents are geraniol and citronellol. It blends well with rose and is often compared to the rose family.
Geranium belongs to the Geraniaceae plant family and originates from Egypt and South Africa. We use an Egyptian variety. It is usually cultivated in the Mediterranean.
We use geranium oil in our Whoosh shower jelly and Whoosh temple balm for its fragrance and toning qualities.
