Geranium Egypt Essential Oil CAS 8000-46-2

All geranium oils are distilled from cultivated plants. The yield is very small, usually from 0.1 to 0.3 percent (of the plant material), averaging less than 0.2%. In most areas, there are two crops per year, but climatic conditions in the most important areas play a decisive role in the annual output of oil. Geranium Oils are used very extensively in perfumery. Significant quantities of geranium oil are used in the production of “rhodinol ex geranium” or “terpeneless geranium oil”, etc., see Geranium Oil, terpeneless. Very small amounts of geranium oil are still used in certain types of flavors.
