A Few Medicinal Properties of Patchouli
Anti Phlogistic or Anti- inflammatory: Counters inflammation and fevers.
Anti Septic: Protects wounds from infections, and in some Asian countries Patchouli is used for treating venomous snake bites.
Astringent: The astringency in Patchouli is believed to help stop hemorrhage by contracting the blood vessels. Astringent properties induce contractions in muscles, nerves and skin. This can also help in preventing hair loss, sagging of skin and loosening of muscles.
Cicatrisant: Patchouli oil is known to have a cicatrisant property which means it has the ability to help heal cuts and wound and speed up the fading of their scars as well. Other scars that this has been proven to be effective on are marks left from boils, acne, pox, and measles.
Cytophylactic: Helps regenerate new skin cells, keeping the skin looking young and vibrant
Deodorant: Effectively keeps body odor away with its strong aroma. Recommended to be used in dilution.
Diuretic: Increases the frequency and quantity of urine. This helps remove toxins from the body as well as lose weight, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and increase appetite.
Fungicide: Inhibits fungal growth and infections. Patchouli is known for effectively treating athlete’s foot.
