History, Science & Medical Uses
Egyptian geranium has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. Its name originates from the Greek word “geranos,” which means crane, referring to the shape of the fruit. Ancient Egyptians believed that geranium was a powerful remedy for many ailments and used it to treat pain, inflammation, and various skin conditions. They even buried jars of it with their dead Pharaohs as part of the burial rituals.
In more recent times, modern scientists have begun to study the effects of Egyptian geranium on health and disease. Studies suggest that it may help reduce swelling and inflammation due to its anti-inflammatory properties, provide relief from stress and anxiety due to its sedative effects, and work as an antibacterial agent against bacteria and fungi. It is also known to contain compounds with antioxidant activity, making it a potential natural remedy for free radical damage caused by oxidative stress. With these newfound benefits of Egyptian Geranium becoming more widely known, its popularity continues to increase around the world.
Egyptian geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) is a perennial herb native to South Africa that has been used for centuries in traditional herbal medicines. Research suggests that Egyptian geranium has several potential medical uses, including treating anxiety and inflammatory conditions like asthma and arthritis.
The essential oil derived from the leaves of the plant has been studied as an anxiolytic, or anti-anxiety agent. In one study published in 2017, inhalation of the essential oil reduced stress in healthy adults experiencing psychological distress. Studies have also suggested that the oil may have anti-inflammatory properties that could be beneficial for treating inflammatory diseases such as asthma and arthritis. In addition, it has long been used traditionally to treat mild illnesses such as colds and coughs, although there is limited evidence to support its effectiveness for these conditions.
The Egyptian geranium is a plant known for its medicinal benefits, and science has identified several chemical compounds that give it those unique healing properties. The main compounds found in the Egyptian geranium are cinnamaldehyde, linalool, pinene, germacrene-D, β-caryophyllene and limonene.
Cinnamaldehyde is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It also helps to reduce pain and swelling. Linalool has analgesic effects and can be used to treat headaches. Pinene has antiseptic properties as well as being an expectorant, helping to loosen mucus in the airways. Germacrene-D acts as an antimicrobial agent and may help to reduce the growth of bacteria on the skin when applied topically. β-Caryophyllene is a natural insect repellent that can help protect against harmful insects like mosquitoes. Finally, limonene is a natural decongestant that can help clear nasal passages and soothe irritated throats.
These compounds work together to create the healing effects of Egyptian geranium, providing relief from pain, inflammation and minor infections when applied topically or ingested in tea form.q
