Earthy, Grounding PATCHOULI

Patchouli (Latin name Pogostemon cablin), is a perennial shrub with large green leaves and whitish- pink flowers and is native to the tropical regions of Asia.

Patchouli first became popular in the Western world during the early part of the 19th century, when Europe started importing textiles, clothing & carpets from the Middle East & India. “Crushed or ground Patchouli was sprinkled between the layers of fabrics to protect the precious cargo from moths & other insects”.

Patchouli is also used extensively to make soap, cosmetics, & perfume. It is a sensual, grounding base note and its properties may be helpful for:

  • Feelings of stress & anxiety

  • sleeplessness

  • soothing skin issues

Patchouli grounding properties and exotic scent help to calm our busy minds and is often used in meditation and for enhancing our love lives. Not everyone likes Patchouli on its own due to its past overuse. But try adding it to your essential oil blend for an exotic, earthy element .

*** Patchouli is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing when properly diluted before topical use. Use caution during the 1st trimester of pregnancy.
