Essential Oil Notebook: Patchouli

Patchouli Essential Oil has a complex aroma with earthy, musky, and sweet notes. It is a perfect addition to floral and woodsy blends. It can also bring balance to a citrus blend. Used aromatically, Patchouli evokes a sense of emotional grounding. I include it several of my diffuser blends and sprays - Fallen Leaves Diffuser Blend, Nature Walk Diffuser Blend, His & Hers Massage Blends, Unicorn Vibes Body Spray and Cologne. It's also beneficial when used topically or internally.

  • Apply to dry areas to help reduce the effects of dry skin.
  • Diffuse Patchouli alone or with woody aromas for a grounding blend to balance your emotions.
  • Diffuse with Lavender for a calming effect.
  • Apply one to two drops of Patchouli to your neck or temples for grounding effect.
  • After a long day, combine Patchouli with Peppermint and apply this blend to your forehead, temples, or to the back of the neck to relieve tension.
  • When your emotions start to overwhelm you, combine Patchouli with Vetiver and apply to the bottoms of your feet. This blend will help bring a sense of calm. 
  • Consume one drop of Patchouli in 4 oz of water or other liquid. Historically, Patchouli has been used to help reduce appetite, support healthy circulation, and to freshen breath.*
