EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Patchouli enhances a desire to dream of new horizons and work toward new goals. Patchouli assists needed changes to our perspective on money, material possessions, or lack of abundance issues of any kind. Patchouli is valuable in the recovery and balance of the lives of those who have strong constitutions and rarely pay attention to their health – as they pursue material goals and eventually collapse both mentally and physically – and prevents a reoccurrence of this pattern.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Patchouli assists with releasing constipation when the emotional roots are holding on to every material thing and element of safety that we can. (oil information courtesy of Butterfly expressions)
