GERANIUM Body Cream
This post is also available in: Français (French)
NEW LEAF Geranium
GERANIUM Body Cream contains geranium essential oil. Like palmarosa, geranium is one of the finer, more feminine essential oil scents. Its sweet, floral perfume is often mistaken for rose. Geranium essential oil has a reputation for lifting the spirits. It is also said to be beneficial in the treatment of cellulite. NEW LEAF Geranium Body Cream has an almond oil base combined with our own organic calendula oil. Almond oil contains Vitamins A, D and E and omegas-9 & -6 (essential fatty acids). As well as nourishing, it softens and revitalises the skin. Calendula oil is very good for replenishing skin and keeping it smooth and healthy. Suitable for all skin types, this is one of our slightly lighter body creams.

Why do we use geranium in our Geranium Body Cream?
The recorded use of geranium oil dates back as far as the Egyptians. Geranium essential oil is sourced from the flowers and leaves of the Pelargonium graveolens plant. There are over 200 species of geranium but the graveolens type produces the best quality oil. Geranium oil is said to offer a variety of health benefits. In aromatherapy, geranium essential oil is used to treat problems such as anxiety, depression and insomnia. Geranium oil is sometimes called the “women’s oil” because of its beneficial effect on menstrual and menopausal problems. As well as its affect on moods and hormones it is also used for skin problems like acne, eczema and athlete’s foot. Inhaling the oil is said to help respiratory tract problems. Aromatherapists use it in the treatment of sore throats and tonsillitis. When we asked our customers what they loved about our Geranium Body Cream they said they love the fragrance; the way it makes their skin feel; the way it seems to help them feel calm, and the improvement they’ve noticed with their cellulite and general skin quality since using it regularly.
