Patchouli Essential Oil

Pogostemon cablin

Part of the mint family, Patchouli is more prevalent than you might expect. Its powerful, rich scent helps encourage equanimity and feelings of balance. Patchouli oil also offers many benefits to the skin, including reducing the appearance of blemishes.


Usage Tips:

  • Include Patchouli oil in your daily skincare routine. Apply directly or add a few drops to your cleanser or moisturizer. 
  • Pair Patchouli oil with Peppermint and water for a refreshing mouth rinse.
  • To encourage feelings of collectedness after a long or frustrating day, diffuse and/or apply Patchouli oil to your temples, the back of your neck, wrists, or other desired areas.
  • Add a few drops of Patchouli oil to your deodorant or detergent for a sweet, camphoraceous twist in aroma.
  • For a DIY perfume or cologne, combine a blend of essential oils with Fractionated Coconut Oil in an empty roll-on bottle. You might try 34 drops Wild Orange, 20 drops Douglas Fir and 18 drops Patchouli oil, or create your own new signature scent from the oils you like best.
