Escentia Patchouli (11ml)
Said to be sedative in low doses, but somewhat stimulating in high. May cause loss of appetite. The powerful odour may be too persistent for some people.
PROPERTIES & POSSIBLE INDICATIONS:
Earthy aura promotes a grounding effect. Seems to sharpen the wit, making the mind more objective.
Most outstanding feature is its binding action due to powerful astringent and cicatrisant properties. This could be helpful for loose skin, especially after dieting. Seems to curb appetite. Marked diuretic properties could help for water retention and cellulite. Said to offset heavy sweating, also combining this with a deodorising action. There is some association between Patchouli and increasing libido.
