This month, geranium is the featured ingredient in our In the Mix column, and for good reason, considering all the benefits it provides. It's also part of Aura Cacia's Choose Calm campaign, which is promoting ways in which its geranium essential oil can be used to invoke calm while traveling. Here are a few tips from the folks at Aura Cacia:
- Hotel Room Makeover Mist: Add three drops of geranium essential oil, two drops of lemon essential oil, and one drop of tea tree essential oil per ounce of water in a spray bottle. Shake and spray throughout the room.
- Suncare Skin Soother: Add three drops of geranium essential oil per application of an unscented lotion or aloe vera gel.
- Decompress Express for Travelers: Add three drops of geranium essential oil to one teaspoon of almond oil and massage into temples and the back of the neck.
