Product Abstract: Geranium is a hairy perennial shrub, often used in hedgerows, and will stand up to about one meter high (3 feet) with pointed leaves, serrated at the edges and with flowers that range from red to a pinkish white. Geranium plants originated in South Africa, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco and were introduced to European countries in the 17th century. There are over 200 species of geranium, of which some are scented and some not. The petals are used in gourmet jellies and confections, and the oil is widely used in scented topical applications.
Cautions: Dilute before use; May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: When my order arrived, my kiddos and I had fun "blind" sniffing each EO and guessing what it was. For some reason, I'd totally forgotten I'd ordered this and couldn't figure out what it was; all I knew was that I LOVED it! Floral scents tend to be a bit too sickening to me, but this is nicely balanced by a mellowing sweetness. Not sharp, harsh, or musky at all. I could see this being popular with a lot of women. I really like it in my facial toner and deodorant. It also made a really nice perfume with patchouli and orange, too. I'm just kicking myself for not ordering a bigger bottle; I think this'll be the first one I use up!

Rating: I mix this with hibiscus and lemon and it is gorgeous in soap!
Rating: I've been soaping with this oil for a few years now, in response to customer requests for a floral / rose soap.
It is overwhelming straight out of the bottle (especially when heating up in CP soap) and honestly, I thought I would hate it when I first soaped with it. Don't let first impressions get you down! Blended with lavender and a hint of some spicy EOs this has become my favourite bar for my own shower. It mellows out with curing and lavender takes the sticky-sweet edge off.
I also LOVE this oil for my personal skin care. Added to a facial serum with Frankincense and Lavender I had noticeable improvement in fine lines and my overall skin tone and texture. Having glowing skin sure helps sell soap!

Rating: My all time favorite EO!!! I would love to use it in any product I make but because of the price I don't . Oh , my gosh it smells wonderful!! Flowery and slightly sweet , you keep coming back to smell it again and again. Used it in a face toner spray with peppermint and it is marvelous! Add a small amount to baby soap with baby powder FO and moms love it. If you can afford it , buy the big bottle!

Rating: Strong! A heady floral scent. Mixes well with other eo's. Not sure about it by itself. Can be overwhelming if too much is used.
By:Cindy, Chatsworth, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Dec-2012
Rating: I have bought it specifically for my hypothyroid problems and the wonderful scent is a bonus - I will be wearing it all day long. I have mixed it with the Clove Bud essential oil, Rosemary, Frankincense and Lavender - equal parts, beautiful mix. I cannot stop smelling it and I keep applying it on my skin.
Rating: Heady floral scent. Very strong, great when used in tick spray. 25-40 drops in a 4 ounce spray bottle keeps them away from pant legs and socks.
Combines nicely with other EOs when diffusing or creating other recipes.
Lots of therapeutic uses for this EO. DOn't just buy the sample, get yourself at least a 100 ml bottle to say having to reorder.

Rating: Very pleasant eo. I used it in the bath and the whole room smells lovely
Rating: Not my favorite oil. I find it too overwhelming and heady. However mixing a small amount with lavender makes for a really lovely and gentler scent.

Rating: My female customers love this to balance hormones around the peri-menopause stage in life, love it, its very popular.
By:Tim, Canfield, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Mar-2016
Rating: I really don't care for the smell of this one, it is a sweet overpowering floral smell, not completely like a geranium flower/leaf smells to me. More perfumey. However, it's uses are a broad-spectrum germicide (antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal), as well as being a good oil-balancer for skin care, and I believe it will perform well for these tasks.

Rating: This essential oil is amazing, it is a great scent, beneficial for the skin, in healing the skin of minor abrasions and minor cuts. The scent is strong, great at adding to my Shea mixtures. Amazing, thanks NDP for offering such a staple oil for myself and my business.
By:Diane, Woodbridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Jul-2015
Rating: Love this EO! It makes any other essential oil's scent density and exotic when you put a bit. You don't have to add a lot in soap like other EO because the scent is strong so this EO is very efficient!

Rating: This is a very strong scent and I find I like it only when blended with other EOs at a small ratio. It does add a good sharp floral-ness though.
By:Mikaela, Kitchener, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Jan-2016
Rating: I almost bought organic geranium EO but opted for this one because of the reviews. I wanted it for skin care efficiency but also for its scent. I am yet to try it in a cream or lotion. But my goodness, it smells absolutely womderful!! I will probably end up using it in a perfume!
Rating: The scent of this oil is SUPER REFRESHING!! It smells so FRESH and it actually works to relieve nausea and headache! I just put two drops of this oil in my hand, rub my palms together, and "breathe" it, then voila! No more giddy feeling! Also, NDA essential oils are not only for aromatherapy! I use this together with other NDA essential oils such as lavender and carrot seed to make Argan and Rosehip facial oil! Results are FANTASTIC!

By:Meya, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-Oct-2013
Rating: One of my favorite EO in facial toner. Fresh, and sweet high quality product. It is rather unfortunate that it's availability and price has become prohibitive.
By:Pauline, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Apr-2011
Rating: Adore this scent. It is amazing blended with sandalwood and bergamot for a masculine scent.
By:Megan, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Aug-2012
Rating: I really love this oil! But, too bad the price has quadrupled, unfortunately, I can't buy at this price. My clients are very disappointed. They really loved this grapefruit & geranium soap. I'm disappointed too!
Rating: Beautiful smell. I cannot wait to try it in my products!
By:Susan, Whitby, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-Feb-2010
Rating: This is a wonderful oil for circulation and relaxation. It is great to add to the bath; about 5-7 drops and have a very relaxing aromatic bath. It is also great for the skin, so if you add to the bath, your skin will be glowing. Just be careful not to splash in your eyes, as all essential oils should be used externally. You can also add this into your homemade mosquito repellant for an additional boost. Excellent product.
Rating: Geranium Egyptian is fresh and wonderful in all facial products. It gives a cool feeling to the skin.
By:Shirleen, Markham, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jul-2006
