Patchouli – Essential Oil
A nostalgic scent for many, Patchouli is heavy, sweet, and spicy. It is relaxing, soothing, and is believed to be an aphrodisiac. Patchouli oil helps heal infections and insect bites, and lessens stress related problems and addictions. It is great for balancing acne-prone, inflamed, cracked or mature skin. Patchouli also aids in treatment of oily skin, hair, scalp disorders, eczema, and wrinkles.
