Physical and Psychological Effects:

Another treasure known to alleviate anxiety and depression. Together with sandalwood and jasmine, patchouli is reminiscent of the “flower power” generation. Not without merit, this oil has many abilities. It is antidepressant, antifungal and astringent. It is effective for the general improvement of well-being; its warm qualities have a grounding affect. It is also powerful for skin care as it aids in treating minor skin conditions such as inflammation, fungal issues and open wound healing. Patchouli can help relieve anxiety and depression and works well as an antiseptic to heal chapped or broken skin and fungal infections such as athlete’s foot. Blend with ylang ylang and sandalwood to promote romance in the bedroom.
