Geranium's astringent qualities constrict tissue and arrest bleeding, thus it is also helpful for bleeding ulcers. The tannic and gallic acids contribute to this effect.

Topical Applications: Compress for swollen eyes. Apply powder to bleeding wounds. Mouthwash or gargle for sore throats, thrush, tonsillitis, and sores. Poultice for bleeding wounds, fractures, sprains, insect bites, rashes, toothaches and hemorrhoids. Douche for leukorrhea. Facial steam and hair rinse for oily conditions. Crushed leaves are rubbed on the skin to repel mosquitoes.


Culinary uses: The flowers and leaves are edible, but too astringent to be palatable unless mixed with other edibles. Alone, they can be used as a garnish.


Energetics: Pungent, Bitter, Neutral.


Chemical Constituents: Tannins (gallic acid), oleoresin, citric acid.


Contraindications: Regarded as very safe. However, prior to flowering, Geranium greatly resembles the poisonous plant Monkshood.


Comments: The name Geranium is from the Greek, gheranos, meaning 'crane' in reference to the fruit's similarity to a long bird's beak. Blackfeet Indians used it to stop bleeding.


The common name Geranium also includes the species Geranium robertianum (Herb Robert), Geranium macrorrhizum (Big Root Geranium), Geranium viscossimum, Geranium caespitocum, Geranium erianthum, Geranium bicknelli, Geranium richardsonii, and other Geranium species, which are used interchangeably with Geranium maculatum.
