Product Background
Located in the Southern Indian Ocean off the coast of Madagascar, Réunion Island has been recognised by the world’s perfume houses as the source of the finest Geranium essential oil for more than a century. Known as Geranium Bourbon—a nod to the island’s former name, île Bourbon—this variety of Geranium essential oil has a distinctly complex, fresh, green floral aroma with delicate rosy undertones. Up to 185 kilograms of geranium bourbon flowers, leaves and stems are distilled to produce 1 litre of essential oil. Geranium Bourbon essential oil can be enjoyed as a personal fragrance, home aroma or topically as part of your skin care routine.
The unique growing conditions in Madagascar result in an essential oil that has a distinct aromatic constituent profile and therefore a different aroma from Geranium essential oil from Egypt. Aromatically, Geranium Bourbon is sweeter and more complex than Egyptian Geranium, with rosy undertones that draw comparisons to Rose essential oil..
