ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

PATCHOULI

Carrot seed essential oilHigh quality, pure patchouli oil (the only kind Aura Cacia offers) is richly scented, earthy and mysterious, evoking the heady scent of incense and the Far East. Patchouli is distilled from the leaves of a tropical herb related to peppermint and lavender. The aroma is instantly recognizable — similar to musk with a wine-like nuance. And like wine, patchouli gets better with age. Patchouli oil helps dispel nervousness and engenders a centering mood of self-awareness and calm.

Herbal Body Powder
3 tablespoons cornstarch
6 drops patchouli essential oil
5 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops sweet orange essential oil

Mix oils and cornstarch in a container. Use the back of a spoon to break up any clumps.

Patchouli & Rose Body Spray
4 ounces bottled or distilled water
3 drops rose otto or absolute oil
19 drops bergamot essential oil
19 drops patchouli essential oil
19 drops lemon essential oil
Small spray bottle or atomizer
