(Geranium macrorrhizum)

“Zdravtez” is the Bulgarian word for health and has been used in Bulgarian traditional medicine for centuries. A leaf was given to someone as a gesture of goodwill or to bestow good luck for a traveler on his journey. It is solid at room temperature, giving it a fixative quality (which means that it can slow down the evaporation rate of the other essences in a blend.) The aroma is herbaceous, earthy, and uplifting. Related to the common geranium.
