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.

Geranium Rose Oil is primarily extracted using the steam distillation method. The process involves harvesting geranium plants when the flowers are in full bloom. The plant material is then sorted and loaded into a distillation apparatus. Steam is passed through the plant material, causing the oil glands to release the aromatic compounds. The steam, carrying the oil, is condensed and the separated oil is collected. The extracted Geranium Rose Oil undergoes a separation process to remove impurities. It is then stored in dark, airtight containers. This oil is highly valued in industries such as perfumery, cosmetics, and aromatherapy for its therapeutic and aromatic properties.
