Geranium Bourbon Essential Oil

Latin Name:Pelargonium graveolens
Country of Origin:Réunion
Extraction Method:Steam Distillation
Plant Part(s):Leaves and Tops

The leaves and top of the geranium plant is picked and dried before geranium bourbon is distilled. This allows the plant’s fragrance to intensify, resulting in a stronger smelling essential oil. This variety of geranium differs from the geranium Madagascar (rose) essential oil in its scent profile. By using the young growth of the plant and omitting the stems, geranium bourbon lacks the lemony-rose profile that can be recognized in the geranium Madagascar variety.
