About Patchouli Essential Oil
If you are like many, patchouli may have been your introduction to essential oils when you were first searching for your own unique signature perfume. This Indian patchouli is one of the loveliest, top-grade patchoulis available today. This oil has a much finer and fuller aroma than those patchoulis that have not been given proper time to age and develop. Patchouli has an extremely rich, sweet-herbaceous, aromatic, spicy and woody-balsamic odor. There is an almost wine-like ethereal floral sweetness in the top notes and this sweetness remains throughout all of the stages of dryout.
Patchouli, like vetiver, sandalwood, cedar and frankincense is a perfume fixative. A fixative is a necessary component of a perfume, with its rich and deep scent and the power of holding top and middle notes to the skin for long periods. Patchouli has long been used for beautifying the skin. Aside from being a famous perfume, it is added to many skin lotions and potions. It has the ability as a soothing tonic to restore your skin’s youthful glow and grace. It can be very effective in calming and clearing red and upset skin. It is also used diluted to apply to nails which may be suffering from yellowing or cracking.
As for the mind, Patchouli is first thought of for its sensual power in creating an amorous atmosphere. Adding patchouli to your diffuser along with Ylang-ylang, Bergamot and Frankincense will create a sweet space to become uplifted and adored.
