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.
How to use
Add 2-3 drops to a vaporiser to help lift the mood and soothe any tension.
Dilute to a maximum of 1% in a carrier oil and use in massage to help balance emotions and relieve stress.
Try blending with baking soda and coconut oil to make an all natural deodorant.
Add 2-3 drops to a bath along with other balancing oils such as Rose, Jasmine or Lavender to help you de-stress and rejuvenate.
