Choose Geranium Egyptian if you want to address the following issues or concerns

  • Menstrual Discomfort: blend 3 drops of Geranium Egyptian and 3 drops of Clary Sage in 10mL of Evening Primrose Oil. Massage the abdomen during times of menstrual discomfort.

  • Topical Application: Dilute in a Carrier Oil at 1% for the face and 2 - 4% for other parts of the body.
