I sometimes hate geranium oils. They smell too green or grassy and it can be overpowering. I finally gave in and got this one. It's more expensive than most oils I use for CP soap, but thought it would be worth it. I like it and will continue to use it. It is my favorite geranium oil I have smelled. Although I still don't love geranium oil, this is a good one.
Intoxicating and beautiful. This bourbon type geranium, opened a whole new interest in geranium for me. I have used geranium essential oil more for the properties than the aroma. I love it so much I have been incorporating it into many of my products that need that touch of exotic floral. I also add it to my cold pressed rose soap. It gives the rose and extra kick, and allows me to use less of rose oil which can be quite expensive. My customers rave about the effects it has on them when having P.M.S..
Geranium is one of my favorite oils, I use it in my salves and oils to aid in menstrual cramps for family and friends and it has worked. I can't wait to experiment with it in other products.
Oh, wow. I'm very nearly at a loss for words to explain just how nice this Geranium Bourbon is... especially at this price! I was truly floored when I uncapped the vial and took my first sniff. I'm an indie perfumer who is always looking for the best suppliers of specific EO's and absolutes so I like to sample things from lots of different suppliers. Camden-Grey's Geranium is hands down the absolute best I've ever smelled. You cannot beat the price for this quality of EO, trust me. Like someone else said, I never really cared that much for Geranium - but this one just might convert me. Most Geranium EO's are very sharp and very green to my nose with a very faint underpinning of rose, but this one is rich, mellow, and rosy. It still has a green note, but without the sharp biting edge that most seem to have. I find myself continually uncapping it for another whiff. Thanks, CG! This was my first order with you guys and I was so impressed with everything. I'll definitely be back.
By far the best!
You will not find a better geranium EO. I was so surprised when I bought this and actually fell in love with the beautiful aroma as I have always found other geranium EO's to be cloyingly sweet. This one actually has the scent of rose mixed with it. If you have never liked geranium, try this one. You are in for a pleasant surprise!
I love this essential oil! Geranium Bourbon smells better than other Geraniums I have smelled and tried. You also can't beat the price!
Oh, my!! This is an exquisite, and intense rosy geranium. Just a little goes a long way. I used a blend of geranium bourbon with several other essential oils to make a decadent bath salt blend.....I never wanted to leave the tub!!
Strong and Delicious!
You have just got to try this! It is so strong, and lasts, and lasts, and lasts. I love it and so does everyone else around me! It is a very expensive scent, at an extremely economical price. About a year ago we used 2 ml to scent a just over a pound of melt and pour, and that was plenty. We did add some of Camden's Moroccan red clay, which may have worked as a fixitive though, too. My mom loves the little soaps, and wont let anyone use them, lol. She has them in a dish in her bathing room. I went to visit her last week for Christmas, and I could still smell the soap! It smells nearly as wonderful as it did to begin with :) (By the way, I don't normally use m&p, the kids were making it for Grandma). I have also been using it in tiny quanities in facial and massage oils. I love it!!!! It does smell like roses, but better. It is beautiful, and it makes me happy. If you do decide to try it, which you really should, remember to dilute it well. It can be over powering, and at first I thought it was too much. Once I realized how potent it was, and how to dilute it better, I fell strait in love <3
Enriches with age so buy a larger quantity than your immediate needs!
Sweet, slightly floral, and herbal, a great green scent. In lotions and solid lotion bars, it works great. I have yet to try it in CP soap since I am concerned the delicacies of the scent will be lost.
The best Geranium ever!!
I have purchased Geranium eo from many different suppliers and for many years now but this is hands down the most beautiful Geranium and rightly priced!
Smells like roses
This oil smells just like roses, without the nasty high price. I am not a fan of rose scents, but my customers that are love this one. Very rich, and deep.
My best seller soap is the one with this geranium EO and lavender. One day two of my customers were fighting over the last bar!
I made a blend with a few other oils that turned out not to smell the greatest. Then I added 2 little drops of this wonderful smelling oil to my blend and whalla! It was fixed. I love the potent smell of this oil!
Very nice scent
This is a high-quality rose geranium scent - I really have enjoyed blending it in aromatherapy and also in CP soap. A nice substitute for the highly expensive rose attar.
I have really been enjoying this essential oil. The price offered for this essential oil is wonderful and the quality of it is amazing. It has a really warm rose scent that adds depth to some of the essential oil blends that I make.
BEST GERANIUM I HAVE ENCOUNTERED
I consider myself a huge geranium fan and I can't help but to buy nearly any and every geranium EO out there. This is hands down my favorite thus far. It has none of the sharpness I have found in other lesser quality geranuims. It is nothing but pure sweet, soft floral geranium bliss. I can't say enough good things about this oil - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
I agree with the previous reviewers. This is the most pleasant, soft and rose-like bourbon geranium oil I've encountered. It retains the fresher characteristics of standard geranium EO's but in a subtler fashion, accompanied by a crisp, slightly citrus-like rose/floral top.
This is the winner!
I'm very particular about this scent, since it's one of my favorites and varies a lot among brands. After trying several others (some harsh-smelling, all more expensive), I finally found the one that makes me say aahhhh. I've used it in CP soaps, lotions and massage oils with excellent results.
Great price for Bourbon
Geranium Bourbon has a reputation as the best geranium oil and this one doesn't disappoint, has a fresh spicy-rose scent. Excellent price, high quality.
Well done Camden! I love this one, has a lovely 'rose' touch and helps to add to rose scented products so you can stretch the expensive rose essential oils just a bit more. Not a replacement for Rose, but it's a great extender.
This is my favorite oil. I have ordered it many different places but camden-grey has the very best. The fragrance is exotic, rich, and lovely. I put it in my bath every night as well as in many body creams.
