A flowering plant in the same genus as the common window-box variety, geranium is an aromatherapy favorite for emotional balance and relaxation. Often bearing bright billowing red flowers, the attractive plant has an intoxicating rose-mint fragrance, making it a popular ingredient in perfumes and skin-care products. For some, geranium’s aroma also expresses uplifting fruit notes of apple and lemon.

History of Geranium
A favorite among gardeners, geranium’s beautiful blooms often thrive when other plants don't, thanks to their versatile semi-succulent leaves and stems, which retain water even in droughts. This moisture-conserving ability may explain why geranium is prized for its skin-supportive qualities and why it yields such a lush, fresh and floral scent. These aromatic properties made geraniums particularly valued during the Victorian era, when they were grown in pots around households, incorporated into perfumes, and even used in baking scented cakes.
