Scented Geranium or Rose Geranium

Scented Geranium or Rose Geranium

Scented geranium, also called rose geranium (Pelargonium x asperum cv. Egypt), is a subshrub of the family of the Geraniaceae, native to Southern Africa.

Its long, green, three-lobed leaves with reddish veins are sharply cut and downy. The buds are pinkish; the small flowers, white and purple, have five petals, two of which are streaked with red. Few plants are as widespread and universally admired as the geranium, of which about a hundred species are cultivated, all of them fragrant but with very different scents, and from which we have the pleasure of picking leaves and flowers throughout the year.


Main aromatic molecules: Monoterpenols (citronnellol, geraniol), terpene esters (geranyl acetate + citronnellyl formate), monoterpenones, sesquiterpenols.
Family: Geraniaceae.
Producing organs: Leaves.
Yield: 100 to 250g of essential oil per 100kg of leaves.
Equivalence: 1ml → 31 drops (dosage calculated for a calibrated dropper European Pharmacopoeia)
