Geranium essential oil is one of the most popular essential oils used in aromatherapy due to the rich nourishing properties it holds. This stimulating and restorative oil promotes comfort and balance, both internally and externally. Geranium essential oil may help optimize oil production of the skin as well as reduce the size of enlarged pores, generally softening and clearing out our complexion. Used cosmetically or topically in general, Geranium Essential Oil is reputed to effectively eliminate dead cells, tighten the skin, promote the regeneration of new skin, and diminish signs of aging. Geranium oil is a wonderful essential oil for use in balancing the skin’s production of sebum and in helping with acne. Geranium Essential Oil is astringent, and it can also be helpful with hemorrhoids and varicose veins. Aromatically and emotionally, Geranium Essential Oil is a soothing and balancing oil, and it can be helpful with anxiety and depression. However, using too much could potentially have a stimulating effect for some, so it’s an oil to use lightly until you become more acquainted with it.
One of the top benefits of Geranium Essential Oil is definitely its mood-boosting yet soothing abilities. Add 8 to 10 drops in a diffuser or burner for the ultimate aromatherapy session.
Goodbye stress & anxiety:
Geranium essential oil is a go-to natural choice for reducing stress and anxiety. Many studies have shown that Geranium Essential oil carries potent anxiety-reducing, mood-enhancing and pain-relieving properties. It does so by reducing the levels of cortisol in the body (aka the stress hormones). To reduce stress, simply add a few drops of Geranium essential oil to your diffuser or oil burner to relax and unwind after a long day – or optimally, by your bed before sleeping. You can also apply the Geranium Essential Oil topically for the same benefits, but make sure to do a patch test before to ensure there are no allergic reactions.
Relax and unwind:
Geranium Essential Oil has been used for many years to promote relaxation and peace of mind. To get the best relaxation benefits, simply add a few drops to a hot bath or add it to your body lotion or massage oil for the ultimate aromatherapy massage.

Using essential oils on pets:

Essential oil use cases show the most significant risk of toxicity is from direct skin application on your pet’s skin – these same cases also share that a large volume was applied directly and neat (pure without a carrier) to the pet’s skin. Knowing that there is a risk in using these oils to your pet’s fur or skin, we strongly recommend consultation with your veterinarian or animal care specialist prior to applying or exposure to any of our products.
If you’ve chosen to use essential oils around your pet, we first recommend taking note of your pets behavior, contacting your vet with any concerns, and the below list of Rūt products that we feel are the most pet-friendly:
Single note essential oils:
- Clary Sage
Should you choose to use your ultrasonic diffuser in the presence of your pet, we recommend:
- Using only small amounts of essential oils. 1-5 drops are our recommendation
- Ensure the space is well-ventilated with a window open slightly for fresh air
- Always keep a door open so that the animal can enter and exit the room easily
- Take note of how your pet responds at all times and if you notice your pet resisting an aroma, discontinue use and move them to a well-ventilated space
- Be particularly mindful of pets that are in cages or enclosed spaces (including birds and small rodents) as they cannot leave the room if they become uncomfortable
