Anti-Aging Benefits of Geranium Oil
Tightens skin, reduces wrinkles and sagging
Geranium oil is a natural astringent which causes the contraction of body tissues most prominently in the skin. Because of this, geranium essential oil reduces skin from sagging and tightens the skin around our faces reducing wrinkles and premature aging. It is a common ingredient in anti-aging cosmetics because of these benefits.
Reduces scarring and stretchmarks
People spend a fortune on cosmetics marketed to reduce scaring from skin-related problems such as acne, surgeries and stretchmarks. Often these products leave us with less than desired results too which can be quite depressing.
Geranium oil is a strong cicatrisant which helps the formation of scar tissue by promoting blood circulation and melanin distribution. Scars and marks on the skin can be greatly diminished with the use of geranium essential oil making it an inexpensive and more effective option to other cosmetics.
