of top parts
Essential oil Bourbon geranium (Madagascar)
Composed similarly to the essential oil of Rose Geranium with citronellol, geraniol, linalool, citronellyl formate and isomenthone in different proportions. Although it contains no 10-epi-gamma-eudesmol, it does contain rose oxide.The cosmetic and well-being properties of the two geraniums are similar (only rose geranium is insect repellent), but their fragrances differ greatly: highly appreciated in cooking and perfumery, Bourbon geranium’s fragrance is soft, flowery, sweet and pink. In energetic aromatherapy, it is the oil that refocuses and regulates.
