Organic Geranium Rose Essential Oil
Organic Geranium Rose Essential Oil is also known as Organic Geranium Bourbon Essential Oil.
Organic Geranium Rose Essential Oil is known to be very similar aromatically to Organic Geranium Essential Oil, which is, of course, unsurprising, as they are both made from the same plant, albeit from different parts of the world. However, there are some who also liken it to Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil, despite there being distinctive differences.
Nevertheless, Organic Geranium Rose Essential Oil is aromatically exceptional in its own right. It is the most favoured affordable organic essential oil for its aroma.
Interesting fact: As a circulatory oil, meaning it exits the body through perspiration, it’s a great ingredient in natural deodorants.

Organic Geranium Rose Essential Oil Origins
Organic Geranium Rose Essential Oil or Organic Geranium Bourbon Essential Oil is made from the Pelargonium species of plants, which are native to South America. However, in current times, the Geraniums / Pelargoniums grown in Africa are considered to be the best. More specifically, the best source is from Reunion.
Other sources state that Geranium plants (pelargonium adoranitissimum) can be grown almost anywhere in the world, but they originated in Africa and weren’t introduced to Europe until about 1690.
Pelargoniums prefer warm, temperate to subtropical climates with a long growing season. They do not do well in extreme weather conditions. Pelargoniums grow well within a temperature range of 10°c to 33°c. Plus, they need sufficient sunshine during the growing season to ensure they produce good amounts of oil
Originally, the name Rose Geranium / Geranium Rose was exclusively reserved for the variety of Organic Geranium Bourbon Essential Oil derived from a cultivar originating from Reunion Island, Madagascar. This Organic Geranium Rose Essential Oil was interchangeably known as Geranium Bourbon Essential Oil or Geranium Rose Essential Oil.
However, the name is now applied to several organic aromatherapy oils spanning a number of other species of the Pelargonium family. The list of Geranium / Pelargonium species is comprised of:
- Pelargonium graveolens
- Pelargonium capitatum
- Pelargonium × asperum
- Pelargonium cv. rosé
