The Essential Oil of Rose Geranium has a lot to offer in terms of health, and many people regularly enjoy many of the following health benefits that are listed below:-

Astringent:

The main function of an astringent is to induce contractions in various parts of the body. Accordingly, Rose Geranium Oil makes the gums, muscles, intestines, skin, tissues and blood vessels to contract.

Rose Geranium essential oil can also prevent muscles and skin from sagging.

Lastly, it can reduce the presence of wrinkles by tightening the facial skin, thereby delaying some of the effects of premature aging.

Antibacterial & Antimicrobial: 

The strong properties of Rose Geranium essential oil prevent bacteria or microbes from developing on wounds and keeps you safe from developing infections.

This boost to the immune system allows the body’s defensive cells to focus on the internal challenges and dangers, rather than being weakened by peripheral toxins on the skin.

 

Vulnerary: 

Rose Geranium Oil speeds up the healing process of wounds, cuts and surgical incisions. This property makes it a vulnerary and it is due to its other qualities as a hemostatic, styptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial and cytophylactic substance that also make it a vulnerary.

Scar Tissue: 

Everyone wants their skin to be free from scars and after marks of fat-cracks, surgeries, boils, acne or pox. Unfortunately, many people end up spending a fortune and trying all the available cosmetic solutions on the market and still don’t get the desired results.

They could have avoided a waste of time and money had they tried Rose Geranium Oil first. It is a powerful cicatrisant, so it helps the scars and other spots on the skin to fade and vanish.

It facilitates blood circulation just below the surface of skin and also helps promote a uniform distribution of melanin.

Hemostatic: 

Rose Geranium essential oil can stop hemorrhaging in two ways.

First, as an astringent (more specifically, a styptic), it causes the contraction of blood vessels and helps to stop blood flow, as discussed above.

Second, as a hemostatic agent, it speeds up coagulation and the clotting of blood, which aids in the healing of wounds and the prevention of toxins from entering the bloodstream through open or unclotted wounds.

Cytophylactic: 

Rose Geranium Oil promotes cell health, encourages the recycling of dead cells, and the regeneration of new cells. This helps in the growth of the body cells as well as the gametes, by making the body metabolize things efficiently.

Other Benefits:

Rose Geranium essential oil is very beneficial in the treatment of acne, dermatitis and other skin diseases like eczema and Psoriasis.

Furthermore, it has powerful effects to uplift spirits and mental functioning, which makes it useful in the treatment of depression, chronic anxiety, and anger issues.

A Few Words of Caution: 

Rose Geranium oil can have sensitizing effects in rare cases. Since it influences certain hormone secretions, Rose geranium essential oil is therefore not advised for use by pregnant women or for those women who are breast-feeding, since it is unclear whether those same effects transfer through breast milk.
