Patch-Me-Up Patchouli

Are you the kind of person who thinks that modern medicine is the best solution for every illness? Or are you the type of person who still believes in the power of natural remedies? If you’re the latter then I’m with you.

It is true that organic stuff are sometimes way more expensive than a generic medicine capsule or tablet. Plus, these organic products may only be available in particular establishments. Yes, it may cost you a lot of resources (i.e., money, time, energy, etc.), but I assure you that its use and effects are for your long-term benefit.

You may have already heard of the countless benefits of several essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, castor, and coconut oil. But there is one special oil I discovered recently that I want you all to meet!

Have you heard of Patchouli Oil? I believe that it is one of the herbal oils with the most number of benefits for the body, fifteen to be exact! Patchouli oil is derived from a large evergreen perennial and is a close relative of lavender, mint, and sage. It is known for its strong fragrance and is actually used in laundry detergents, air fresheners, and skin care products. Sometimes, it is used as a moth repellent. This oil is as good as it smells!

Some of its benefits include having antiphlogistic and antiseptic properties. Patchouli oil is used to treat external and internal wounds and infections, such as tetanus and ulcers. It speeds up healing of even the smallest cuts on the skin, lessening the possibility of developing a more serious infection.

It also helps relieve fever and inflammations such as arthritis and gout, and it stimulates contractions of muscles, skin, and nerves—making it perfect for keeping our muscles toned, preventing the sagging of skin, and strengthening the hold of gums on teeth. More importantly, it increases blood circulation, provides proper oxygenation of cells and organs, and stimulates regeneration of new cells; hence, another proof that it keeps our skin healthy and young-looking. The abilities of Patchouli Oil to protect and tone our skin and body are definitely some of its most notable properties.

If you are prone to high blood pressure and love eating excessive amounts of oily and fatty foods, this oil is definitely good for you. Because of its diuretic properties, it effectively lowers our blood pressure and cholesterol level, improves our appetite, and removes toxins and unnecessary salts and uric acid from our body, thus, decreasing our risk of developing gallbladder and kidney stones.

One of its benefits which make it more interesting is its aphrodisiac properties. Back in the ‘60s, this oil has already been known to treat sexual problems such as loss of libido, impotency, erectile dysfunction, frigidity, disinterest in sex, and sexual anxiety as it stimulates our sexual hormones. Of course, these sexual inadequacies are something we shouldn’t be ashamed of. But in case any of us have the misfortune of dealing with any of them, this is yet another good reason to like Patchouli Oil!

Lastly, as I’ve mentioned earlier, because of Patchouli Oil’s strong smell, it impressively keeps unwanted insects away. You can use it as an insect spray, heat the oil to serve as a freshener, add it to lotions, or mix a decent amount of Patchouli Oil with water to wash your clothes and sheets. After doing all this, you will surely enjoy an insect-free home.

If you also have problems like fungal infections such as athlete’s foot, Patchouli Oil is effective in inhibiting the growth of fungi and provides protection against other infections like dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis as well.

These are just some of the countless wonders this oil could amaze us with. While it is true that there are other ways to acquire all these benefits, isn’t it better to receive all these miracles from just a single bottle of Patchouli Oil?
