Use: Geranium, being a premium priced essential oil, is usually added in small amounts to add a sweet, floral note to more medicinal scented terp essential oils. Essential oils are added to henna paste to break down the henna plant cellulose, which gives you a better lawsone dye release. Please don't add more than 15ml essential oil per 100g of henna powder. Without a proper carrier oil, essential oils should be limited.

Can also be used for aromatherapy. 

Do *NOT* diffuse essential oils if you own a bird! The molecules are too small & can coat the alveoli of the lungs, causing pneumonia.
