Getting down to essentials: Patchouli Oil

Many of your clients may not have heard of Patchouli Oil, but they have experienced it. Patchouli Essential Oil has a dusky, musky, earthy scent, which makes it popular for adding to perfumes, soaps, incense, and essential oil blends.

Patchouli Oil is distilled from the fresh or dried leaves and flowers of several species of tropical herbs, which are part of the mint family. The herb is originally from Southeast Asia but now is cultivated in many tropical regions, mainly for the production of its essential oil.

The oil is considered effective in relieving stress, anxiety and depression, producing a positive mental state. Its calming effect is very effective for relaxation and meditation.  According to Organic Facts, Patchouli Oil’s ability to create a positive mental attitude is “due to the impact that inhaling patchouli essential oil has on the hormones and various chemical reactions in the body and mind. By stimulating the release of pleasure hormones like serotonin and dopamine, feelings of anxiety, anger, and sadness simply disappear.”

Patchouli has a number of other healing benefits. It is used to soothe inflammation so can be used for a range of skin problems, says Organic Facts. It also is useful in treating internal inflammation from such conditions as arthritis and gout.  It promotes muscle contraction, which help prevent sagging skin. It also regenerates new skin cells, which keeps the skin looking young, healthy and vibrant. And it can help acne prone skin because of healing and germ-fighting properties.
