The geranium, the queen of balconies.


The geranium comes from southern Africa and currently the most extensive cultivation is in Egypt, China, Reunion Island and Morocco. It was introduced in Europe around 1690 to manufacture its oil as a substitute for the much more expensive rose oil.

An essence that began to be used to replace the expensive rose oil and is still used in perfumery today, valuing its aromatic fragrance. Geranium essence is part of the ingredients of numerous perfumes and, contrary to what one might think, mostly in men's fragrances to which it brings a touch of intense freshness.


The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves and stems prior to flowering. And this essential oil is also widely used with medicinal and cosmetic purposes.

A plant that has gone from being a substitute to a protagonist, adorning our lives from balconies around the world and from the aromas that are enclosed in the most sophisticated perfumes.
