Geranium Oil

Geranium Oil is an essential oil derived from the leaves and stems of the Pelargonium Graveolens plant which is native to the Reunion Islands. The most common method is steam distillation. In this process, the leaves and stems of the plant are placed in a still and steam is passed through the material which causes the essential oil to evaporate. The steam and oil vapors are then condensed and collected with the oil floating on top of the condensed water.
