A sensuous, earthy aroma. Used for its rejuvenating, mood-enhancing, relaxing and aphrodisiac properties.
Patchouli has a strong, sweet, spicy and exotic fragrance, with a slightly herbaceous undertone. The aroma can be quite powerful and prone to linger so a little goes a long way. Patchouli essential oil is often used in skincare products as it is helpful in the re-growth of skin cells and the formation of scar tissue. It also helps reduce the appearance of ‘orange-peel’ skin and is good for rough, cracked skin, sores and wounds.Patchouli’s deodorising action helps reduce the smell of sweat. Patchouli essential oil is obtained from the young leaves which are dried and then fermented before distillation. Patchouli blends well with black pepper, frankincense, geranium, bergamot, clary sage, lavender and myrrh.
