The History of Geranium Egypt

Pelargoniums, commonly called geraniums, shouldn't be confused with the European genus Geranium. The name Pelargoniums is a Greek word which derives from Palargos meaning “stork”. The beak-like fruits originate from South Africa, and were first officially recorded in Europe in 1690; they are now a popular and widespread garden plant in frost-free areas. Only a few of their 200 species are cultivated for the production of geranium essential oil. The primary regions of flower cultivation and production are Reunion, Madagascar, Egypt and most other North African countries. Climate and soil are crucial factors in the quality of the plant and the essential oil.

This oil was a complete mystery until the work by Recluz, the chemist responsible for the first distillation of the leaves in 1819. Later a chemist and botanist called Demarson, made a study in Paris which identified the top varieties to yield for the production of essential oil, in which Rose Geranium began in France in 1847. These researches led to the introduction of Geranium oil to therapy.
