Geranium oil invokes many different responses. Some people hate it and some love it. If you hate it then you need to work on making friends with it soon. Like most floral oils, Geranium oil is great for hormone balancing and great for skin. The most common concern I use Geranium oil for is for kidney and bladder support. Geranium is a great oil for bug repellent. People have referred to Geranium as the poor man’s Rose oil. This is because Geranium oil shares similar properties to Rose oil except it is much cheaper to produce.
Geranium oil is found in dōTERRA’s ClaryCalm Monthly Blend for Women and Zendocrine Detoxification Blend.

We all have an inner compass inside of us to guide us. When we’ve been rebuked for making mistakes as a young child, we naturally get mad at ourselves and rebuke ourselves automatically for not being better. All these mistakes creates evidence to support the belief that we are not good enough and that we are not safe. You can think of Geranium as the heart healer. When you truly love and trust yourself, your love and trust in others has substance. You no longer give hollow love to others. Geranium helps you re-parent yourself with unconditional love and acceptance.
Geranium helps us restore confidence in the goodness of others. When we allow others to love us, the universe provides all the love we are ready to receive. Love comes in the form of friends, help, money, time, peace, health and all sorts of blessings.
Geranium is great for children and babies to keep their heart open. Sometimes when something disappoints or they feel rejected or abandoned, we create heart walls and then block good things from coming into our lives.
I love the fact that Geranium helps clean out organs like kidneys where we hold our fears and insecurity. When those negative feelings are gone, we open ourselves up to more love and joy.
