Everyone has their “go to” scent that kind of tells the world who that person is. Patchouli would be my “go to” scent. Patchouli is grounding, earthy, sensual, and to some people even erotic.
As good as patchouli smells, it is also very useful to the body. This oil wears many different “hats”… Patchouli works as an antidepressant in the body. It uplifts mood, drives away disappointment, and relaxes tension in the majority of people. This impact is due to the chemical reactions that the plant has on our hormones. It stimulates the release of pleasure hormones like serotonin and dopamine, allowing anxiety, sadness, and anger to decrease.
Patchouli is good to soothe inflammation. It works great on inflamed skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, but also on internal inflammation like arthritis and gout.
Patchouli acts as a natural insecticide. Despite the wonderful sweet earthy smell, bugs absolutely hate it. This plant repels mosquitoes, bedbugs, lice, ticks, flies, moths, ants. I use this lotion often and when using it, I have not been bit by a mosquito or tick one single time.
All while smelling like the most beautiful earth queen… EVER!
I could go on and on about all the wonderful benefits of the patchouli plant…how it protects wounds from developing infection, how it boost energy and the immune system, how it removes toxins from the body, how it is great at preventing skin from sagging, or how it’s even being used for sexual problems like impotency or loss of libido.
You simply must experience it for yourself. This Patchouli soap goes splendidly with my Patchouli All Natural Lotion and Emulsified Sugar Scrub…you too can feel like an earth queen…or king.
