A natural antiseptic, geranium oil disinfects wounds . Generally not irritating to the skin, to clean minor wounds, geranium oil can be applied directly to the wound. Some wounds are difficult to treat as they become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. Researchers state that geranium oil is particularly helpful in healing wounds that have recurring infection. It is also helpful in relieving water retention and swelling, as it stimulates the lymphatic system. By boosting the lymphatic system, excess water that may have been retained in the tissue is released, which translates into firmer skin and improved circulation. Geranium is a great addition to skin conditioning and facial treatments, and is suitable for all complexions. It is further said to slow the skin’s aging process.
