We describe its scent as “bold, thick, sweet and floral,” with “hints of Rose flowing through it.” A versatile and highly beneficial oil, geranium essential oil is helpful with everything from asthma to menopause and from stress-related issues to soothing broken hearts. It is even known to repel insects and can be useful in the prevention or removal of lice. Granted, not everyone will love this woodsy scent, but when paired with lavender essential oil, it softens the scent. As only lavender can do, lavender contains an oil that seems to have sedating effects and can relax certain muscles. It also seems to have antibacterial and antifungal effects. A bath with this combo won't disappoint.
