Patchouli essential oil
Strong, deep and woody aromas.
A favourite of the parfumier for centuries, and made particularly well known in the 1960s, this oil can have a bit of a hard time in terms of reputation. But we think this idea's outdated. We love patchouli's deep, woody notes, especially when sweetened with a few floral scents. It's got antiseptic and analgesic properties, too, so it is in every way a useful oil.
As a safe guide, use no more than eight drops in a bath for a skin-nourishing soak, two or three drops in a foot spa (or a washing up bowl for the old fashioned among us...) and no more than four drops per 100ml of base or carrier oil.
