Patchouli is our reminder of the sacredness of everyday things. It's human nature to make some objects special or holy and treat others as though they don’t matter. Patchouli reminds us that everything can be sacred.
Species: Pogostemon cablin
GREAT FOR SKIN
Patchouli was shown in studies to help prevent photoaging, which may be why it has been used in skin care to help prevent the wrinkles, rough skin texture and pigmentation that come from too much time in the sun.
Patchouli is an excellent insect repellant, especially against ants and mosquitos.
GOOD FOR THE MIND
Patchouli was also shown to reduce the activity of the sympathetic nervous system (that's the part of us that gives the 'flight or fight' response) when inhaled. Patchouli is a relaxing and helpful essential oil that can keep your skin looking great as well as calm you down.
