About Geranium Oil
Geranium essential oil is one of the most marketed and its components, Citronellol and geraniol, are used for the synthesis and manufacturing of a great number of high grades and superior quality perfumes. Geranium is cultivated as a rain fed perennial crop in some pockets of cool Agro-climatic conditions of South Indian hills.

Geranium oil is primarily used by fragrance companies.
The major markets for geranium oil are the United States, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, other European countries, and Japan. France is a major re-exporter of geranium oil, often further distilled and re-blended there to client specifications. Various industry suppliers estimate world demand at around 250 tons Annual Japanese imports are estimated at around 15 tons. 

China is the primary producer, with most other product sourced from Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, and Reunion. Egyptian product is considered of a better quality than product from China, while Reunion product is considered superior to both. Other countries such as Russia produce for their own internal consumption.

Production in India is about 5 tons per year against a demand of 150 tons. To meet the high demand of Cosmetic & Perfumery Industries imports is resorted to. One hectare plantation of geranium yield about 25 kg oil valued at about Rs.1,00,000.  A farmer can earn about Rs.50,000/- net profit on per hectare basis according to Consultants in the field.
