Aromaticshave been prized for centuries for their therapeutic, spiritual and aesthetic benefits.

Whether traded for their weight in gold, used medicinally to help encourage the body back to homeostasis or to foster a healthier more balanced emotional outlook, essential oils are one of Mother Earth’s most potent forms of plant medicine. In the spa experience, we look to essential oils versatility to offer a range of synergistic treatments and experiences. From supporting the body’s detoxification, healing and stress response to creating an overall enhanced state of wellbeing and spiritual awakening, these aromatic treasures enrich and enliven the guest long after they leave the treatment room.

The rich, full, and floral aroma and biochemical action of geranium offers numerous benefits from skin care, pain relief, circulation, and calming the nervous system. In addition, it is stimulating to the adrenal glands, a key system related to our stress response.

The right essential oils (quality as well as variety) in the correct formulation when used via inhalation, have the ability to literally shift our mood, our thoughts, our conscious awareness, and therefore our overall physiological response. This makes essential oils perhaps one of the most effective ways to balance stress response. This is a complete game changer in the world of wellness.

As you explore this small sampling of holistic benefits of geranium, I encourage you to experience the aroma yourself in a place of quietude and allow the wise presence of this beautiful plant guide you to its wisdom and healing prowess.


Geranium is an excellent aromatic for beautification, calling to our inner radiance to shine, particularly as we age. Used in skin care for hormonal balance, or treating inflamed or sluggish complexions, adding this pure essential oil to face creams, serums and treatments hydrates and deeply nourishes the skin. Due to its benefit as an analgesic and antiinflammatory, geranium is indicated for rheumatism and muscular discomfort that arises from overexertion. It increases circulation and supports lymphatic drainage. Its ability to stimulate the adrenal cortex makes it an excellent choice for the adrenal system to replenish vitality and alleviate fatigue. It is also one of the most beneficial essential oils for hormonal balance whether it is for PMS or menopausal phases of life.


Geranium is an oil of great upliftment and inner connection with the ability to elevate one from the doldrums of depressive energy and anxiousness. It is indicated for clients that present with an overactive reliance on their masculine nature: over analytical, over achievers with the unending to-do list who are exhausted, and feel underappreciated for all their actions and activities. This oil is also indicated for those with high emotional peaks of frustration. Geranium reminds us to be more loving and compassionate with ourselves, and to fill our own cup before giving to others.


Geranium is an incredible ally to awaken our authentic feminine aspects. The depth and richness of its aroma draw forth the innate wisdom within by inviting us to access those spiritual gifts associated with thedivine feminine. It is an almostendless reservoir of: mystical connection, intuition, sensual expression, creative inspiration and the depth of knowledge held within our ancestral lineage imprinted within our cellular genetic code and DNA.

 “It reminds us of the fullness of life. Breathing in this oil dissipates anxiety and the uncertainty of the future, replacing it with a fullness of presence rooted in the moment. Geranium invites us to embrace the beauty of our ability to feel the joy, the wonder, and all the intimate opportunities life has for us to explore. It speaks to us with a reminder of the richness of life, love, and loving oneself first.” *

 Geranium Anointing Oil to Honor the Sacred Feminine- Anointing is an ancient art of reverently using aromatic oils to honor and bless an self or other to honor the Divine light and spirit that exists within each and every one of us. Memory of this practice is held deep within our cellular consciousness and can have a profound effect, awakening the truth deep within us that all life is sacred.

 6 drops of Geranium essential oil(Pelargonium graveolens)

4 drops of Patchouli essential oil (Pogostemon cablin)

3 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil (Cananga odorata superior extra)

2 drops of Bergamot essential oil (Citrus bergamia)

 Blend into 30 ml of carrier oil of your choice and infuse with the intention for honoring the feminine in all of life. When you are ready to anoint your guest, have them close their eyes and invite in an intention to honor and bless a part of their own feminine nature that is craving gentle compassion, forgiveness and love. Place a drop of this oil onto the palm of your right hand and have them take a deep breath in to anchor their intention through the brain-body connection. After about thirty seconds, anoint their heart space inviting them to breathe in and expand their receptivity to the sacred feminine energies of wisdom, creativity and radiant inner beauty.

 Lymphatic Detox Massage Oil

This recipe has been a client favorite through the years for a full body detoxification massage to move the flow of a sluggish lymphatic system, stimulate overall circulation, and to help diminish cellulite and stretch marks.

5 drops of organic Carrot seed essential oil (Daucus carota)

6 drops of organic Juniper essential oil (Juniperus communis)

4 drops of organic Geranium essential oil (Pelargonium graveolens)

10 drops of organic Grapefruit essential oil (Citrus paradisi)

6 drops of organic Cypress essential oil (Cupressus sempivirens)

Blend into 30 ml of your favorite carrier oil and incorporate into your lymphatic system massage protocols. This can also be used for targeted areas of the body as well. Avoid UV exposure post massage as Grapefruit is phototoxic.

Incorporating the daily use of essential oils like geranium, transforms the inner and outer landscape of our lives, uplifting our mental outlook, emotional resilience and physical health. The more consistently we feel good, the more this vital positive nature can overflow into every aspect of our lives — our families, careers, our homes and every way in which we relate to the world around us, creating a bridge for the highest expression of who we are to surface.
