Geranium Oil is known to lift not only the mind, but our skin as well. This oil balances both your skin and your mood and is beneficial when treating anxiety, depression and even PMS. Stress and anxiety can age and effect our skin's appearance, so the more help we can get the better. I think everyone can benefit from a little more balance in their lives.
This is a must for your essential oil and aromatherapy collection.
