A popular choice for a natural deodorant and perfume
Rejuvenating and relaxing when vaporised
Patchouli essential oil has many potential applications. It has been used in hair care to help combat dandruff (try adding a few drops to your hair conditioner or create your own by blending it with our Amphora Aromatherapy Shampoo or Conditioner Bases).
Patchouli is also popular as a natural skin tonic when diluted; it may also offer balance to oily and combination skin types.
Patchouli has also been widely used as a deodorant; its unmistakable scent has been used for centuries in perfumes, incense and all sorts of other uses (it is believed that Queen Victoria used Patchouli to protect her linen chests from moths).
It's deeply earthy, exotic and powerful aroma can be emotionally balancing for many. When burned or vaporised it is reputed to be good for calming nervous tension and relieving anxiety and lethargy.(10 ml)
