Patchouli - Pogostemom cablin

I have used Patchouli in blends to reduce stress, depression, and anxiety. It can also be used in blends for skin conditions such as dryness, inflammation, scars, sores, eczema and wounds. It is moisturizing and cooling for the skin.  Great for insect repellent blends.

Personal Experience, Research, Possible Actions

Patchouli is an excellent insect repellent both applied on the body and used as incense. The oil is used as a perfume and a deodorant, and in the past was used to scent clothes and keep away moths. Research shows the oil’s antibacterial effects are strong.

Its sedative action makes it a great oil to use at night in a bath.
