Regularly utilized in incense, the scent of patchouli is memorable to those who grew up in the 70’s. The oil possesses natural grounding properties that help protect against emotional imbalance.
In fact, reduces the appearance of blemishes, soothes minor skin irritations and promotes a smooth, glowing complexion. The oil stimulates the body’s absorption of nutrients, promoting optimal metabolic function and greater energy. Patchouli’s strong skin supportive properties, along with its natural ability to balance emotion, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when you want to look and feel your best.
To ground emotions, combine 1-2 drops each of vetiver and patchouli and apply topically to the reflex points, massaging into the skin. For tension relief, massage 1-2 drops into the neck, shoulders, and temples.
You can also apply patchouli topically to support skin health. Simply rub 1-2 drops softly over the affected area.
