Patchouli Oil has an earthy, musky aroma that has the rare distinction of improving with age - the older the oil, the fuller the scent. It provides harmony to the body and spirit, and can even fight off body odor by performing as both a deodorant and antiperspirant.
Patchouli has been used as an insect repellent, aphrodisiac, antibacterial, and antifungal. Patchouli also has the ability to diminish appetite, making it a friend to dieters all over the globe.
In the 19th century, the British learned to identify patchouli as it was used to scent imported fabrics from India. While the musky, earthy scent of patchouli is most associated with fabrics, it has many therapeutic properties as well.
Mixes well with: Allspice, Atlas cedarwood, bergamot, cedarwood, cinnamon, clary sage, frankincense, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, lavender, orange, myrrh, palmarosa, pine, rose, rosewood, sandalwood, tangerine, and ylang ylang.
100% pure and natural Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin)
Steam distilled from the non-flowering leaves of the plant.
For aromatherapy use. For all other uses, carefully dilute with a carrier oil such as jojoba, grapeseed, olive, or almond oil prior to use. Please consult an essential oil book or other professional reference source for suggested dilution ratios.
Always dilute before any use other than aromatherapy. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not use if you are pregnant or lactating. Can be a sedative if used in large amounts. Because patchouli can cause appetite loss, do not use if recovering from illness or if battling eating disorders. Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.
