  1. Geranium has strong, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties (8-11). More importantly, geranium has an anti-infective activity that is directed against many respiratory microbes known to cause ear infections, including influenza virus, streptococcus, pneumococcus, and haemophilus.
  2. When geranium preparation is applied to the skin surface it produces a soothing effect (12).
