Frankincense and Patchouli Benefits
Patchouli and frankincense both have benefits for the skin, and together their properties are enhanced.
Frankincense is a natural astringent, tightening and toning loose or sagging skin. It is believed to heal damaged skin cells, reduce acne, prevent wrinkles and slow signs of aging.
Patchouli too has many benefits for the skin, helping to treat skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, and cracked, dry skin.
Both frankincense and patchouli have active ingredients that have anti-bacterial properties, and together they assist in healing wounds, scars and other blemishes on the skin.
Both have the greatest benefits when applied topically to the skin as essential oils, but they also both have relaxant benefits when used in aromatherapy or burned together as incense.
Sandalwood and Patchouli Benefits
Patchouli and sandalwood blend well together and they share known properties to help you to relax.
Sandalwood has an exotic woody scent that is a great stress reliever, while patchouli actively helps the nervous system to release serotonin, the pleasure hormones that relieve feelings of anxiety and stress in the body and mind.
A blend of sandalwood and patchouli can be enjoyed as essential oil in aromatherapy, or burned in incense to promote peace and calmness.
They also combine well together in soaps, and both are known to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
Sandalwood and patchouli are both high in anti-oxidants which can reduce toxins and help to heal and protect the skin from free radicals, the unstable molecules that can damage cells causing aging and illness.
Sandalwood, frankincense, and patchouli are incredibly versatile scents that can be utilized in a variety of ways, such as perfumes, oils, soaps, waxes, and incenses.
Each of these scents can be used alone to create a unique fragrance, but when combined, they create a harmonious blend that is truly exceptional.
