Benefits of Patchouli Essential Oil:
- Relieves Depression - This oil works great for people suffering from depression. It
helps them to get over the feelings of sadness or loss and fills them with new hope. That
is why patchouli essential oil is so frequently used in aromatherapy. It uplifts the mood,
drives away disappointment, and relaxes tension in a majority of people. This is due to
the impact that inhaling patchouli essential oil has on the hormones and various chemical
reactions in the body and mind. By stimulating the release of pleasure hormones like
serotonin and dopamine, feelings of anxiety, anger, and sadness simply disappear.
- Soothes Inflammation - It soothes inflammation, particularly if the inflammation or
irritation is a result of fever, and it also provides relief from the fever itself. This means
that patchouli essential oil is useful in treating a wide array of skin conditions, as well as
internal inflammation from conditions like arthritis and gout.
- Prevents Infections - Patchouli essential oil protects wounds and ulcers from
developing infections and becoming septic. This is perhaps the most important property
of this oil since small wounds in the skin can lead to many serious infections, including
tetanus, if the wound was inflicted with a rusty, iron object. Patchouli essential oil
protects against that possibility as well.
- Astringent Property - This powerful essential oil stimulates contractions of muscles,
nerves, and skin. This helps strengthen the hold of gums on the teeth, prevent sagging
skin, hair loss, and loosening of muscle tissue. The astringency of patchouli oil also helps
stop hemorrhaging by contracting the blood vessels. It can act as an anti-aging substance
in this way since loosening of muscle and skin is commonly associated with getting old.
- Speeds up Healing - Patchouli essential oil helps speed the healing process of cuts and
wounds, and also hastens the fading of scars. It is similarly effective in eliminating marks
left by boils, acne, pox, and measles.
- Stimulates Blood Circulation - This property of the essential oil of patchouli promotes
growth by stimulating the generation of new cells. It also helps in the production of red
blood cells, which can boost energy levels. By increasing the circulation, it also increases
the oxygenation of organs and cells throughout the body, increasing their functionality
and boosting metabolism. Patchouli essential oil is good at regenerating new skin cells,
thus keeping the skin looking healthy, young, and vibrant.
- Eliminates Bad Odor - The strong sweet, spicy, and musky aroma of this essential oil
eliminates or masks body odor. However, it should be used in a diluted form as the aroma
of patchouli oil might be very strong to some people’s olfactory senses. It remains a
popular oil to use as a cologne in many demographics. Some people find the smell
wonderful, while others are somewhat irritated by its distinctive aroma.
- Stimulates Urination - It increases the frequency of urination as well as the quantity of
urine. This helps to lose weight, lower blood pressure, increase appetite, lower
cholesterol, and remove toxins from the body. Urination removes excess water,
unnecessary salts, and uric acid, which reduce your chances of developing gallbladder
stones and kidney stones, as well as conditions like gout.
- Reduces Fever - Patchouli essential oil reduces body temperature in cases of fever by
fighting the infections that cause it. As an antiphlogistic, it relieves inflammation, which
simultaneously helps to bring it down, since fever can be reduced to some extent if the
pain and inflammation associated with it are eliminated.
- Inhibits Fungal Growth - Patchouli essential oil has been found to be quite effective at
inhibiting fungal growth and infection, thereby providing protection from some notorious
infections like Athlete’s foot. Fungal infections can be quite serious, especially when they
attack the respiratory system through inhalation. Patchouli essential oil becomes very
valuable at that point to keep your body fully protected.
- Kills Insects - As mentioned earlier, the insecticidal property of patchouli oil was
recognized all the way back in ancient times. Despite smelling sweet, it is very effective
at keeping insects at a distance. It is frequently used in sprays, body lotions, fumigants,
vaporizers, and incense sticks. It can also be mixed with water to wash clothes and bed
linen to drive away mosquitoes, ants, bed bugs, lice, fleas, flies, and moths. Only a few
drops are required to keep insects away or you can also burn the oil in a room and have
the effects last even longer. However, be careful about burning the oil inside, as its
distinct smell can quickly seep into your fabric and furniture.
