With its brightly colored flowers and their earthy scent, geranium has a well-deserved history of symbolizing hope. Now, science shows us that ancient cultures who revered this flower were on to something: the oil of this common, hardy flower has a lot of healing properties.
For your little baby in the NICU, anything that eases the discomfort of growing helps increase their energy for building a better body and a more peaceful mind.
Geranium helps muscle aches and pains. And respiratory infections. And helps relieve nerve pain. It improves mental functioning and uplifts spirits.
Its oil helps protect little growing bodies with its antioxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory effects. And it’s an astringent, to help build your baby’s skin.
Infections cause inflammation—not just at the wound site, but in the body.
And research continues to show that geranium can be more effective than anti-inflammatory medications.
Geranium’s anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties work against about 24 different kinds of bacteria and help fight off the infections caused by them—like the redness and swelling of baby acne, eczema or diaper rash.
We created our BEB Organic skincare products because we know they help heal on many levels and in different ways.

- Reducing stress

- Easing depression
- Increasing circulation
- Lowering blood pressure
