Geranium, Rose Cape Certified Organic Essential Oil

Pelargonium roseum x asperum Steam distilled from the leaves and flowers, in South Africa

Aroma: Rose Geranium Essential Oil offers a middle note with a strong aroma, and a rich, bittersweet floral scent.

Rose Geranium is not a replacement for true rose oil, but adding it to a rose-based formula will extend the accents of the rose oil, and reduce the expense and necessity of using it alone.

Nature Identical Essential Oils are blends of natural essential oils and aromatic compounds. When Cape Rose Geranium essential oils became unavailable we opted to bring this in for those who require the scent of Cape rose geranium.
