Our organically crafted Geranium Absolute has a light 'peridot' green colour and is extracted from the tender green leaves and flowering tops of the Pelargonium x asperum (syn Pelargonium graveolens) plant cultivated in vibrant fields dotting the rural landscape of Egypt. Geranium Absolute has a soft yet penetrating, somewhat intense, rich herbaceous-green aroma, with fresh, minty-rosey undertones in the drydown.

But this small shrub also grows widely on Reunion island, France; Spain; Italy; Morocco; Egypt and China.
