GERANIUM Pelargonium graveolens Planet: Venus History & Mythology There are about 700 species of Geraniums, many of which have become very popular as decorative, scented house and garden plants. Only about 10 of all those varieties are used for essential oil production. In Africa, Geraniums are often planted around the house for protection, particularly against snakes. According to legend, the prophet Muhammad imbued the Geranium with its lovely scent, when one day he passed by a humble weed on his way down from the mountain. He took a moment to rest and hung his sweaty shirt on the herb. The Geranium held it up to the sun until it was dry, which pleased the prophet so much that he covered it in beautifully scented flowers. Geranium oil has become one of the most widely used oils in Aromatherapy; its overall effect is described as 'balancing'. Magical use: Geranium essential oil can be used for chakra balancing, to restore the equilibrium between male and female energies. It dispels the demons of doom and gloom and can help to overcome apprehension. It is used in dream work and astral travel. Geranium helps the mind to focus and centre at times when it is overwhelmed with pressure and the sense of 'too much on my mind'. Geranium helps switching gears so one can take a moment to appreciate and smell the flowers on the way. Scent: A spicy rose-like flowery aroma. Blends well with Lavender, Patchouli, Clove, Rose, Jasmine, Juniper, Neroli, Bergamot and Orange. Aromatherapy: Geranium acts as a balancing oil and is both relaxing and stimulating. It is particularly recommended for women's problems, PMT and menopausal symptoms. Geranium can be used as an anti-depressant. It may help in cases of insecurity and gloominess. In aromatherapy skin care products it can be included in blends for mature skin and in cleansing lotions for congested skin conditions such as acne and dry eczema. It is said to be useful for cellulites and water retention. It can be used to treat chilblains. Geranium is insect repellent and is effective against lice.

SAFETY ** ** Pure essential oils are highly concentrated substances that should always be treated with due respect. Organic oils naturally are the purest oils available. ** Familiarize yourself thoroughly with the properties and uses of each individual oil you intend to use and take note of all cautions. ** Never take essential oils internally! * ** Do not apply essential oils neat (undiluted) to the skin. The recommended Aromatherapy standard dilution is 1 - 3%, though certain oils may be used in higher or lower dilutions. Consider each case individually. ** Always adhere to recommended safety standards and recommended dilution ratios. ** If you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergies test oil blends on a small area of the inner arm prior to general use. ** Keep oils out of reach of children and pets. ** Never allow essential oils to enter the eyes. ** If you are pregnant, consult a qualified aromatherapist for suitability and safety of specific oils. Many oils should not be used during pregnancy, some only need to be avoided for the first 3 - 4 months, others may be helpful during labour, but may pose a risk during the months before. ** If you suffer from serious medical conditions such as (but not exclusively) high blood pressure, cancer, thrombosis, varicose veins or epilepsy, consult a qualified aromatherapist for professional advice on recommended oils and dosages. ** We support the notion of people taking responsibility for their own well being. However, if symptoms persist or re-occur or you are suffering from a serious medical condition, or if you are presently taking prescription drugs, we recommend that you consult a qualified doctor or practitioner before attempting to help yourself. Look for a practitioner/doctor who you can trust and who is prepared to work with you in exploring natural health alternatives. *...unless you know better. CARE FOR YOUR ESSENTIAL OILS: Essential oils are highly volatile substances that easily deteriorate or simply "fly off" if not stored correctly. Keep essential oils tightly closed and store them away from any sources of heat, in a cool, dark place. ..

Meaning ‘wheels of light’ in Sanskrit, Chakras filter energy by allowing good energy in and disposing of unwanted energy from vital areas of our bodies. As well as working with the energy around us, Chakras interact closely with our bodies’ organs and endocrine glands, which regulate hormones. When all of our chakras are balanced we feel healthy, strong and emotionally well. Yet Chakras that are out of balance can cause illness, psychological blocks and emotional problems.Chakras were first derived from Hindu culture and are often depicted as coloured lotus flowers positioned along the spine, ascending from the base. The lotus flower represents human potential, as the lotus starts its life at the bottom of a muddy pond, yet rises and blossoms in the light above.
