Lotion
Did you know that patchouli essential oil has regenerative properties for your skin? It stimulates the production of new cells and also increases oxygenation and circulation which keeps your skin looking healthy and vibrant. It can also have a toning and tightening effect on sagging skin. And it makes a great moisturizer, so putting patchouli in a lotion is pretty much the best idea we’ve ever heard of. 
Shampoo
Showers and patchouli are both relaxing experiences, so patchouli shampoo is a no brainer! Patchouli’s moisturizing qualities are great for your scalp, and the scent will boost your mood and relieve tension. When combined with a citrus scent like oranges or grapefruit you get a bright, sweet scent that will wake you up in the morning and leave you feeling fresh and energetic. Follow up with a patchouli conditioner and you’ll have gorgeous silky hair that smells like your favorite perfume!

No matter what form patchouli is in, it makes you smell and feel awesome!

Health Benefits of Patchouli Essential Oils

Many people love using patchouli as a perfume because of it’s sweet, earthy scent, but did you know that patchouli essential oils can be beneficial to your health as well? Like most essential oils, patchouli has a range of different uses that benefit your mind and body.
Antidepressant
Patchouli oil is commonly used in aromatherapy because it has the power to improve your mood. It reacts with hormones in your body to relieve tension and stimulate the release of serotonin and dopamine, which are connected to the pleasure centers of your brain. It also does wonders for relieving anxiety. Wear a small amount of patchouli oil on your wrists and smell it throughout the day for a quick mood boost.
Antiseptic
Patchouli oil can prevent wounds from infection and reduce your risk of tetanus. It can also help cuts and scrapes heal faster and fade the appearance of scars and acne marks.
Reduces Inflammation
This wonderful oil can also reduce inflammation due to fever and treat the fever itself by reducing your body temperature. This could be why it’s such a popular perfume to wear during the summer months!
Insecticide
Patchouli can keep nasty bugs like mosquitos away from you, which makes it a much better smelling alternative to bug spray. Burning patchouli incense or oil can also help keep bugs away from an entire area if you don’t want to put the oil on your skin.
If you like wearing patchouli perfume, you’ll be delighted by all of the other uses for this earthy and sweet smelling essential oil. Patchouli oil is also one of the only essential oils that be safely applied undiluted to your skin!

Do You Miss the Nag Champa Incense? 3 Other Forms of Nag Champa

Incense can have a positive effect on one’s mood. The vibrant scents of Nag Champa, a fragrance originally developed in India, has been especially popular among incense lovers for years. However, if you once burned incense but can’t anymore — perhaps due to restrictions at your new rental or living with a loved one who has allergies — you don’t have to put the relaxation and refreshment you experienced with Nag Champa behind you. Enjoy the bold scent in other forms.
Perfume or Body Spray
Nag Champa perfume and body spray enriches you and allows you to take that bold scent with you wherever you go. Whether putting on perfume for a night out on the town or freshening with body spray for a day at work or running errands, you’ll feel more confident because you’ll love the scent. Perfume is more concentrated than body spray, but body spray is more appropriate for everyday wear.
Soap
Freshen up with Nag Champa soap during a luxurious soak in a bath, a quick, freshening morning or post-workout shower, or when washing your hands throughout the day. The scent permeates the air as you wash and lingers just enough to keep you relaxed after you walk away.
Candles
Whereas incense gives off a lot of smoke, candles allow you to breathe that invigorating scent with little to no smoke at all. Use one at a table for a romantic candlelight dinner or on the counter to freshen a room after you clean it. Take a bath with candles throughout the room and let yourself unwind.

Order your selection of Nag Champa products online today. If you need assistance in selecting any Nag Champa items, contact Patchouli Garden. Even the incense may not be beyond your reach. Consider burning it outside on a warm summer day.
