Feel, live and taste the ways you can benefit from geraniol!
Geraniol-infused essential oils, when combined with a carrier oil such as coconut or jojoba, can help stimulate healing in scrapes, burns and other minor skin wounds. It can also help ease inflammation caused by acne.
Geraniol’s anti-fungal and antibacterial properties make it a great addition to homemade soaps and household cleaners. It’s also especially effective as an insect repellent – even more so than common repellents like citronella and linalool.
While ingesting geraniol-infused oil is not recommended, this fresh and fragrant terpene can be found in citrus fruits like lemons, grapefruits and oranges, as well as in blueberries, blackberries and peaches. Try noticing it the next time you make a summer fruit salad or a comforting cobbler!
