About Patchouli Soap
Patchouli is an herb, a fragrant herb with egg-shaped leaves and square stems. When the scent is added to a soap, Patchouli Soaps are often described as sweet, spicy, and woodsy all at the same time. Others describe Patchouli soap as pungent, mossy, and musty. Patchouli is often used as a low note in perfumes and aromatherapy blends, anchoring the other scents, and mixing or blending to enhance the scents with which it is combined in soap. Patchouli and natural patchouli soap has also been positively linked to improvement of several skin disorders, from reducing chapped, cracked skin and scar tissue to reducing irritation caused by eczema. It has been used to treat athlete’s foot and jock itch, and skin allergies.
