Images of Geranium macrorrhizum/Zdravetz

Zdravetz is the name given to the plant, Geranium marcorrhizum, a wild growing herbaceous perennial to be found in rocky locations at high and medium altitudes in Bulgaria. The meaning of Zdravetz in the Bulgarian language is "health" and it is very easy to see why the plant and its unique aroma is given that name. Smelling the co2 extract one experiences the rich, wild, delightful aroma of the untamed countryside from which the plant is harvested.

The CO2 Total extract of the aerial parts of the plant produces a solid waxy, greenish yellow(non pourable at room temperature) mass, with a sweet, green-earthy-herbaceous odor with delicate roseacous/woody undertone of excellent tenacity. It is a highly complex aroma which radiates out from a earthy-rooty heartnote which permeates every part of the bouquet. In my experience it is deeply connected with the type of aroma one smells when the first rains are received by dry earth and the subsequent growth of richly aromatic crops the follow the arrival of the monsoon season.
