There are many benefits to using Patchouli essential oil! It fights depression, boosts the immune system, works as a natural deodorant, stops fungal growth, reduces inflammation, enhances mood, strengthens hair, fights infections, clears dandruff, treats skin conditions, works as a bug repellent, stimulates hormones, and fights fever! I like to add a few drops to a diffuser! It creates a calming and relaxing fragrance! I received this product for free in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.
