Our lovely Living Libations distillation of LemonGeraniumEssential Oil is from the lemony leaves of the perennial Pelargonium citronellum plant. The aromatic herb is traditionally used in culinary treats and teas for a zingy lemon flavor, and a drop or two of this essence can be used to flavor your favorite cuisine.

"The brambled cares of everyday,
The tiny humdrum things,
May bind my feet when they would stray,
But still my heart has wings...
While red geraniums are bloomed against my window glass,
And low above my green-sweet hill the [wandering] wind-clouds pass."
