This month, February 2021, we’re treating our SOAP SUBS subscribers to the truly delicious, dusky scent of rose geranium soap bars, and we thought we should share with you 5 reasons why rose geranium is so very good for you!
1. Antioxidant and anti-aging properties
Many cosmetic products and lotions contain rose geranium essential oil. This is because of its reported antioxidant properties, which help keep your skin looking younger for longer!
A study in 2013 showed that rose geranium oil had a strong impact on reducing swelling in mice paws and ears. It suggested that rose geranium oil could be the basis of new anti-inflammatory drugs that may have less harmful side effects than current medications.
2. Antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral properties
The antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral properties of rose geranium oil are so powerful, the food industry has even started using it as a natural food preservative. A review of studies in 2017 showed that rose geranium oil reduced bacterial, fungi, and viruses that cause skin disease and infections.
3. Analgesic and anti-anxiety properties
Almost everybody loves the beautiful scent of the rose flower, and studies have shown that the fragrance can enhance relaxation, soothe anxiety and even offer relief from pain.
Many believe that since rose geranium shares the scent of roses, it can have similar impacts on you and your mind and body.
4. Anti-inflammatory properties
A study in 2013 showed that rose geranium oil had a strong impact in reducing swelling – so much so that it has been suggested that rose geranium oil could be the basis of new anti-inflammatory drugs, with fewer side effects than drugs currently prescribed.
5. It smells beautiful!
More than anything else, the beautiful, dusky, rose petal-like scent of rose geranium oil is just an added bonus on top of all of these fantastic health benefits!
