Need a little pick-me-up? This body spray recipe (originally featured in Body + Soul magazine) is sure to chase the blahs away and help balance your mood.

To Make the Spray:

1. Fill a clean, dry mini spray bottle with 4 ounces of pure distilled water.

2. Using a dropper, carefully put the selected blend of essential oils directly into the spray bottle.

3. Tightly close the bottle and shake vigorously to combine. Be sure to shake it before each use, as the water and essential oils tend to separate.

Geranium Essential Oil

The essential oil of geranium is gently steam distilled from the leaves, stalks, and flowers of the plant. It has a sweet, floral-lemony scent that can be bitter to the taste. Although geranium is a stimulating and refreshing essence, it also has calming properties. Nervous tension and depression may be improved by breathing in the beautiful aroma of geranium.* It has also been found to have antiseptic properties.

Geranium is commonly used for menopausal issues, pre-menstrual tension, fluid retention, and challenges arising from fluctuating hormone levels. The sedative properties of geranium encourage relaxation and pain tolerance.

The essential oil of geranium has become a cherished favorite to those with excessive dry or oily skin. Its balancing effect on the skin helps to calm inflamed skin tissue.

Key compounds found in geranium are citronellol, citronellyl formate, geraniol, linalool, linalyl acetate, and geranyl acetate.
