Patchouli's earthy scent has a strong oriental flavour. It creates an atmosphere that reaches deep emotions and encourages natural life flow. It also supports toned, supple skin and may be especially useful in blends to support recovery after excessive weight loss. Its deeply hydrating effect has therapeutic benefit for cracked, dry skin. Blends well with Geranium, Pine Scotch, Orange Sweet and Tea Tree.
To support effective recovery of skin tone following weight loss or pregnancy, add 5 drops to 5ml Grapeseed oil. Apply daily. The scent may be enhanced by blending with Cypress, Geranium, Orange Sweet or Cedarwood Atlas.
Healthy Fragrant Feet
Add 4-5 drops to a teaspoon of body powder, mix and place in your socks. This will help guard against fungal infection and perfume the feet. Add 5 drops of Peppermint to further enhance the effect and scent.
Gardeners Hands & Cracked Heels
This is a wonderful oil for softening gardeners hands and soothing bare feet in dry summer conditions. Add 3-5 drops to half a teaspoon of moisturising cream and massage into affected areas. Repeat daily for great results.
To support natural balance and confidence, and to promote harmony, add 5 drops to the bath once a week and 3 drops to the diffuser every other day. Blend with Lime for greater effect.
