Additional recommended knowledge
Geranyl acetate is a natural constituent of more than 60 essential oils, including Ceylon citronella, palmarosa, lemon grass, petit grain, neroli, geranium, coriander, carrot, and sassafras. It can be obtained by fractional distillation of essential oils.
Geranyl acetate is used primarily as a component of perfumes for creams and soaps and as a flavoring ingredient. It is used particularly in rose formulations where a sweet fruity or citrus aroma is desired.
It is listed on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's list of substances "generally recognized as safe".
