Not sure if you happen to have a copy of Madonna's Like A Prayer album, but if you have the LP, cassette, or CD lying somewhere, go find it and take a whiff. We're willing to bet it still smells of Patchouli even after all these years!
Yup, Madonna was a big fan of the "hippie" scent and she's not alone. Today, you can find this scent everywhere from air fresheners to laundry detergents. We're also seeing a resurgence of Patchouli's musky and earthy aroma in perfumery as a fixative and a popular base note!
In aromatherapy, Patchouli essential oil is valued for its emotionally balancing and grounding properties. If you're feeling vulnerable and off-balance lately, try gently massaging a blend of Patchouli and Peppermint into your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck. Feeling emotional for whatever reason? Add Vetiver and apply to the bottoms of feet to help stabilise your emotions.
You can also get that glow you've always wanted with Patchouli essential oil! Known to reduce facial wrinkles, blemishes, and other skin irregularities, add this oil into your moisturiser for a smooth, radiant, and glowing skin!
