In reply to: and how is Geranium Bourbon different from Egyptian Geranium? Both are Pelargoneum graveolens n/t posted by Lauren on October 22, 2002 at 01:52:34:

Pelargonium Roseum is the most common one from the Islands, a French
possession. Pelargonium Odorantissimum is primarily from North
Africa. Both grow in Réunion though, so... whether your're getting
one or the other is kind of up for grabs.

Bourbon is a term that denotes whether an oil is from the Islands. I
think Vetivert and possibly Ylang also get this designation when/if
they are from Réunion.
