Here is some intel directly from Web MD about Rose Geranium.
"Rose geranium oil is extracted from the leaves and stem of the rose geranium plant.
Some people take rose geranium oil for nerve pain (neuropathy) and for diarrhea. It is also applied directly to the skin for nerve pain, especially pain following shingles. Some people also use it topically as an astringent to tighten skin.
Rose geranium oil is sometimes listed on the label of supplements promoted for weight loss, athletic performance, and body building. That’s because supplement manufacturers claim that rose geranium oil contains small amounts of a stimulant drug called dimethylamylamine. However, laboratory analysis shows that this drug probably does not come from rose geranium oil. It is thought that these manufacturers have artificially added this drug to the supplement rather than obtaining it from rose geranium oil.
Rose geranium oil is used in foods and beverages as a flavoring.
In manufacturing, rose geranium oil is used as an inexpensive substitute for rose oil. It is also used as fragrance in soaps, cosmetics, and perfumes.
How does it work?
Rose geranium oil contains several chemicals that seem to have antibiotic-like effects. The oil might also have a soothing effect when applied to the skin."
Rose Geranium is my GO TO Herb, Essential Oil, Parfum when I need some antibiotic or anti viral support. For instance there have been a lot of people with walking pneumonia this season because of the extreme dampness, rain and cold weather combined with warm sunny days, which actually confuses the body's kidney meridian into being sluggish. I work with CHI SERUM for this but I also always have a 10ml Rose Geranium Parfum in my car glove box, in my purse, and in my office next to computer.
I roll on a bit of the parfum onto my palms and molecularize it into my hands before lightly stroking my face, neck (caryotid) and nape of neck, and through my hair at temple area and forehead. What this does is activate a very subtle antibiotic sweep through my skin and into my blood stream, in my etheric field to cleanse me of any germs that could be adverse for me. I do this immediately after shaking hands with people these days, because we are passing germs this way.
Rose Geranium also has a very steeped culture in an earth mother vibe, a heart chakra opening. In the language of flowers we learn that Rose Geranium means *PREFERENCE*.

Someone or something so chosen.
It is true that this Scent Sings a Strong SOLO SONG and brings a sense of purpose into our field, perhaps helping us to choose the fork in the road situations with more ease.
This is a very beautiful scent, round, earthy and bright. If I am fighting off an incoming illness I am always using Rose Geranium as my prevention go to. In every first kit this and Lavendar Parfum are MUSTS. Lavendar also works in similar ways.
The Roll on bottles in the 5ml and 10ml are perfect for delivery systems. If you are trying to cleanse the air in your home or space then I recommend a spray delivery system that can be purchased in 15ml, 30ml, or 60ml.
I like the larger size as the tube is wider and more comes out during a spraying. I walk through home or space and spray, using a feather to waft it around, or my arm.
