Patchouli Essential Oil 10ml
Patchouli is a very fragrant herb with soft oval leaves and square stems. It grows from 2 to 3 feet in height and provides an unusual odour that is nonetheless characteristic of patchouli when the leaves are rubbed. The colour of the patchouli oil is affected by the distillation machine. If distillation is done in a stainless steel vessel the colour of the oil will be light, but if done in an iron vessel the colour will be darker.
Warm, earthy aroma with fresh fruit - like tones.
Patchouli is recognised by aromatherapists as being effective for combating nervous disorders, helping with dandruff, sores, skin irritations and acne. The specific properties include use as an antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anti-emetic, antimicrobial, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, antitoxic, antiviral, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal, carminative, deodorant, digestive, diuretic, febrifuge, fungicidal, nerving, prophylactic, stimulating and tonic agent. In the perfumery industry, it is interesting to note that Patchouli improves with age, and that the aged product is what is preferred over freshly harvested. In aromatherapy, Patchouli is an excellent fixative that can help extend other, more expensive oils.
For centuries, patchouli oil has been used in the East to scent clothes and linen. In China, Japan and Malaysia the oil was used to treat colds, headaches, nausea, diarrhoea and abdominal pain. In the 1960s, patchouli became popular as an aphrodisiac.
