Like many essential oils, Patchouli is versatile in its applications. However, unlike most essential oils that can lose their potency with time, patchouli ages like a fine wine – and is thought to get better with time, which is fitting, since it has been used in its native Eastern cultures for hundreds - if not thousands - of years.
Patchouli is anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal, and is renowned for its ability to soothe dry, chapped skin, as a cell rejuvenator for mature skin, lessen bloating and ease nausea. The ancient Chinese believed the oil could act as a catalyst for increasing the life force (Chi or Qi) in the body, and many believe in its ability to focus the mind during meditation.
Patchouli’s earthy, exotic scent makes it a popular ingredient in perfumes. In Victorian England, the scent became popular as a result of Indian cashmere shawls, which were fashionable at the time, having been shipped in patchouli leaves to protect them from moths.
Apply to itchy, dry skin; commonly added to skin creams to prevent wrinkles; blend with other scents or use singly as a perfume. The aroma is long-lasting and is best used in small amounts.
Diffuse while meditating to clarify thoughts and focus; breathe in the scent to combat nausea.
