Patchouli Essential Oil

Native to Indonesia, patchouli is a bushy herb in the mint family that typically grows to a height of 2–3 feet and produces small white or pink flowers. Its leaves were used traditionally as a flavoring or herbal tea. Patchouli essential oil contains the naturally occurring constituent patchoulol, which contributes to its earthy aroma. A common base note in perfumes, Patchouli creates a calming and grounding environment when diffused or inhaled and can also be applied topically to moisturize the skin.

Diffusing Notes

These are approximate drops.  Adjust recipes to your needs.  If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired.  You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils.  Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils.  These diffusers are safe to run all day.  Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing.  Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water.  For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.

DIY essential oil bath jellies

 

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Natural coloring
  • An essential oil blend from our 5 splashy summer ideas below
  • Silicone molds
  • 2 packets unsweetened, unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 1 cup unscented liquid soap
  • Isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle

Directions:

  1. Whip the water and gelatin in a heat-safe bowl or pot and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  2. Take off the heat and add the liquid soap. Stir until incorporated.
  3. Add 5-10 drops of natural coloring.
  4. Add 10-12 drops of essential oil. Try one of our cheerful blend ideas below!
  5. Pour the mixture into silicon molds.
  6. If bubbles form on the top of the liquid, spray with isopropyl alcohol to smooth the surface.
  7. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  8. Add water and lather up!
  9. Store jellies in the refrigerator when not in use to prevent them from melting and losing their shape.

Tip: Agar powder—a natural, vegetarian gelatin alternative—can be substituted for the gelatin in this recipe. However, citrus oils can interact with agar powder, and you might need more agar powder to achieve the same consistency as gelatin.
