Patchouli Essential Oil




Pogostemon Cablin
Origin: Indonesia

An oil with a rich, herby and earthy odour considered to be an aphrodisiac – it reduces wrinkles, tones and tightens the skin.

The sweet, musky aroma of patchouli essential oil is quite unmistakable and is often used as a fixative in oriental perfumes. A very potent oil that works best when used in small amounts particularly with anxiety and depression as it feels like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. A highly valued oil and a very good addition to all skin care essential oil blends. It reduces wrinkles and opens pores by toning and tightening the skin. Works very well with sandalwood for more mature skin or the thicker texture of a man’s skin. Works well on athlete’s foot and fungal infections, soothes chapped and cracked skin and is calming to dermatitis.
