Patchouli Essential Oil (Pogostemon cablin)
Patchouli oil is derived from a large evergreen perennial that is a member of the Labiatae family, and a close relative of mint, lavender and sage. The name "patchouli" (Pogostemon cablin or Pogostemon patchouli) is said to be derived from the ancient Tamil words "patchai" and "ellai," meaning "green leaf."Others say it comes from the Hindustan word "patchoi."
It is used to treat skin and hair problems, such as dermatitis, eczema, acne, dry chapped skin, dandruff, and oily scalp. It also has wound healing and scar reducing properties, as well as aphrodisiac effects.
Spiritual: Patchouli essential oil stimulates the conscious mind and stabilizes the etheric mind. The oil also clears environmental energies and neutralizes disharmonic frequencies, making it useful for purification and space clearing rituals, such as meditation and yoga practices. Patchouli induces feelings of growth, love, luck, and especially peace!
