I am so excited to bring this lotion to you. It is a combination of Vanilla Oleoresin and Patchouli essential oil. It smells sweet and has almost a florally vanilla with the deep earthy tones of Patchouli. My very favorite scent in essential oils is Patchouli, but some people find as much as they like it, it is a little strong for them. Vanilla Patch balances that.
As lovely as the scent is, there is some serious plant medicine going on in this combination. Studies have shown that the Vanilla pod (essentially the sludge in the pod which we call oleoresin) helps to bring homeostasis to blood pressure issues; lowering when too high and raising when too low. It also has been shown to help the body’s cholesterol levels the same way it works on blood pressure issues; bringing homeostasis. Patchouli essential oil helps to balance hormonal highs and lows. If you struggle with mental balance, mood swings, depression, too “up or down,” you might find this lotion helps to even things out.
