Patchouli Essential Oil
Earthy, energizing, aphrodisiac...
also a super skin healer
Patchouli essential oil cheers you up and just generally makes you feel good.
Patchouli's musky, sweet, spicy, earthy scent is famous for its popularity in the hippie era.
Like most people, you'll probably find that you either love it or hate it.
In fact, patchouli is known for fighting depression, anxiety and for its aphrodisiac properties.
In skincare, patchouli is a powerful tissue regenerator, great for healing skin problems such as rough, dry or devitalized skin, as well as acne and eczema.
It speeds healing and is good for reducing scarring from wounds.
And last but not least, patchouli's anti-fungal properties can help heal athlete's foot and dandruff. Definitely a skin cream must-have!
One important point: don't use patchouli oil right before bed, because it will keep you awake.
Patchouli is a viscous (thick) oil that is often used as a fixative in aromatherapy blends.
Caution: Do not use it in your essential oil nebulizer - they can't handle thick oils.
