Patchouli has been used in skin care products for centuries. It is known to help with issues like acne, eczema, inflammation and irritation of the skin. Often used as an ingredient for anti-aging cosmetics due to its rejuvenating properties.
So what is about Patchouli that makes people want to wear it as a scent?
It has a deep earthy scent popularised by the counter culture of the 60s and 70’s (that’s a nice way of saying Hippies). The intoxicating aroma or Hippy Scent polarises people when too much is used, but man is it great!
