Geraniol is known as a component of essential oils. The colorless to yellowish liquid has a pleasant smell. As a component of many plants and herbs, such as roses, coriander, lavender and thyme, the active ingredient is widely used.



Due to the pleasant Geraniol is often used in the fragrance and cosmetics industry. But its caring effect has also been proven, so it not only has an anti-inflammatory effect but has even proven its effect against cancer cells in some initial studies. Skin diseases can also be alleviated by this substance. In combination with linalool, citrol and nerol, certain ion channels are blocked that block the spread of such diseases as psoriasis.
