Patchouli became famous during the 1960s in the United States as a favorite scent of young counter-culture people, but it has been used as a scent in Asia for centuries. It is best known for its skin care applications. When added to a carrier oil, it can help with the appearance of skin wrinkles, scars, and skin blemishes and it’s a wonderful addition to a man’s deodorant formula. W hen diffused, Patchouli can help alleviate nervous tension and worry and is a soothing oil to diffuse during meditation.
Focus your mind during meditation by diffusing 1 drop of patchouli with 1 drop of sweet basil. Patchouli is very useful as part of a blend to combat shoe and foot odor. Fill an old tube sock with baking soda; add lemon and patchouli oils to baking soda and tuck sock into the shoe; leave for 12-24 hrs.

5.0 5  Definitely Hits Top 5

Idk what it is but something about Patchouli I just LOVE it!! Its definitely one of those smells from your past. My boys say it smells like dirt/ mud. But to me it's a little peice of heaven in a bottle! It makes me think of my Great Grandpa & getting to go to the farm. Makes me think of my childhood & makes me so happy.

4.0 5  not sure about this...

i'm giving it 4 stars because i love the smell and the oil appears good quality, but i've used other brands before and never had an issue - but this one appears to be giving me an allergic reaction (itchy) - and i heavily dilute it with a carrier oil so i'm not sure what's going on - but don't want to blame the oil if it's just my body. i'm going to try another brand again and see if i get the same reaction.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

4.0 5  Reminds me of the 60's

This reminds me of the smells of the 60's. I was very Young, but I remember this being a very popular scent for perfumes and incense back then. I've always loved its earthy scent. Looking forward to using it as part of my evening routines for winding down.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
