Patchouli – Pogostemon cablin
Steam distilled from a resinoid made from partially fermented leaves. Maybe useful for acne, athlete’s foot, dandruff, impetigo, inflammatory and allergic skin, seborrheic, dermatitis, spider, varicose or broken veins and weeping eczema. Used as an antimicrobial and insect repellant. Thought to be anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-fungal and astringent. In India, it is historically used on cracks, scars, wrinkles, wounds and chapped skin. An aphrodisiac to some, others find the scent overwhelming. Patchouli is used as a fixative or base note in perfumery. It always evokes the scent of folk festivals and exotic women when I smell it. Mildly sedative. Do not take internally, use while pregnant, nor with young children.
