Malte Hozzel on Rose Geranium Essential Oil: "Geranium's vital, sensual presence is not subtle, but direct and unavoidable, making it one of the oils of choice for aphrodisiac qualities. [Geranium Essential Oil] inspires natural beauty and enjoyment, uplifts instantly, and "tonifies" the mind and intellect in a powerful, nearly demanding attitude. Mobilizing hidden creative and emotional reserves, helping us to rise to our own earthly and spiritual identity. A fiery beauty for the spells of all worlds."
