This geranium is not grown for its flowers but for its distinctive leaves which have a wonderful rose scent. This rose scent has anti-depressant qualities and is a great insect repellent, especially for mosquitoes. I’ve grown this plant for years and can testify that it does keep mosquitoes off. Simply take a leaf and rub around your ankles, elbows and wrists; and you’ll love the aroma. Geranium essential oil brings a radiant glow when used in skin care, it’s slightly astringent property opens and cleans pores. Put a few drops of essential oil in your facial oil to cleanse pores and give a warm glow to your skin. Want to give yourself and guests a treat? Bake a cake with it. Pick 3 to 5 leaves and flatten them by pressing in a heavy book (I use a cookbook). When flat, use to line the bottom of a cake pan. Three should do it, the spares are there if you need them. Then fix your favorite vanilla cake (or mix) and pour over leaves baking a single layer. When the cake is done, cool a few minutes then turn upside down on serving plate. Carefully remove geranium leaves. Sprinkle top lightly with powdered sugar. Sheer heaven with a cake flavor unlike anything you’ve ever had.
