This bushy shrub native to tropical regions in Southeast Asia has long been a staple of aromatherapy and perfumes for its divine scent and revitalising properties. With a rich history and unique aromatic profile, Patchouli oil is perfect for the free spirit. Use its calming, relaxing aroma during meditation or yoga practice or apply topically to improve the appearance of skin. Patchouli Oil is an essential ingredient in ONNE’s Complexion Cream, and for good reason. Here are some of our favourite reasons to fall in love with this oil.
A powerful anti-aging agent
The cell-rejuvenating properties in patchouli oil make it a wonder for preventing the signs of aging from appearing. By stimulating muscle contractions, the oil regenerates new skin cells and reduces skin degenerative issues such as sagging.
Patchouli oil prevents and reduces inflammation
Not only is patchouli oil capable of reducing inflammation, it can also prevent the spread of infection. This oil has antiseptic properties, meaning that it can kill infections resulting from conditions such as athlete’s foot. The oil also reduces redness around scars and other skin damage, returning it to its natural glow.
Patchouli essential oil helps to stimulate the healing process of cuts and wounds, and also hastens the fading of scars. It is extremely effective in helping to heal acne scarring. Patchouli is also been known to help in the treatment of eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
Strengthens hair cells
The same powerful properties that promote cell regeneration in the skin also work on hair cells. Patchouli oil can be used to prevent hair loss and strengthens the hair to prevent dry or split ends. Adding a few drops of the essential oil to the scalp can work wonders for hair health.
