Bourbon Geranium Essential Oil originates from Africa, Pelargonium Graveolens was introduced in Reunion Island in 1870, then in Madagascar. The variety that grows on the highlands of the island has a reputation for being flowery. Its smell is on the border between rosé and fruity. The extract is distilled on site by steam distillation, obtaining a 100% pure and natural oil.

The essential oil of Geranium Bourbon is famous for its innumerable virtues. It is first considered as a mild anti-infectious (antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal). Moreover, it has tonic properties that promote blood circulation. It is also anti-inflammatory, stimulating. A must in the different disciplines of perfumery, aromatherapy, olfactotherapy and cooking.



Bright and enchanting, geranium provides a generous floral and fruity top note. Juicy litchis, pears and nectarines intermingle for a “morning dew” effect. Aromatic, moreover, accents of peppermint and nettle underline the whole of a fusing olfactory feature. Then, inviting more and more comparison with the rose, the fruity effect tends towards grapefruit and more exotic fruits, such as papaya or grenadilla. As the maelstrom calms down and stabilizes, it is a tea effect that remains unperturbed, supported by a distant amber call.

*The FEMA number is an international food safety number. It is essential to be able to use them in the kitchen, without it, you are not allowed to consume them. Le Sourceur rejects any responsibility in case of non respect of these rules. Essential oils are also very concentrated, a single drop is often enough to flavor your cold dishes, when we consider a maximum of 2 to 3 drops on a hot dish. Be careful with their use in cooking, too much of them can be dangerous or even fatal. If in doubt, contact a specialist.


We recommend the essential oil of Bourbon Geranium for a small perfumed touch, go with parsimony at the risk of tasting several times your dish before tasting it.
