Merry Meet :)))
Patchouli is a scent that I have recently begun using more frequently and have come to absolutely adore. It first really jumped to my attention in a prosperity mist that I picked up recently. The smell is absolutely amazing. Patchouli is actually quite common when you start looking about, and you will find it is frequently used in many mists, and custom incenses, or oils used in rituals.
Patchouli is a member of the mint family. :)) The most common used parts of the plant are it's oils and it's leaves. It has a fairly strong and musky scent, which is why I would almost say it's an acquired taste for your nose :)))
Patchouli is most commonly used in prosperity work. It's associated with the Earth element, and it's green leaves are perfect to draw prosperity to you. However it has other magickal uses as well. :))) Not only can it attract good fortune, but it can also attract your lover. ;) Yep, it's an aphrodisiac as well. The oil can be strong, so if you are planning on using it on your self, make sure it is diluted or go for the mist form. Another thing to know is that patchouli is a little like cheese. :)) As it ages, it gets stronger both in scent and magickal properties.
Patchouli can also be used as magickal self defense. The mist again is wonderful, or you can leave little sachets of patchouli leaves around your home or in your pockets. You can also use it before meditation or ritual to help you ground and center.
Medicinally patchouli is quite helpful with skin problems such as dandruff or eczema.
To make your own patchouli spray choose the size mist bottle you wish to use. I usually work with a smaller 3 - 4 oz bottle. Add moon water to the bottle leaving a little room at the top for additional ingredients. Add several drops of Patchouli until you reach desired scent. From here you can add patchouli leaves to strengthen it, a bay leaf, citrine gemstone tincture, cinnamon essential oil and a bit of gold glitter. When using the glitter make sure it is the ultra fine glitter. You can use the mist on yourself, your computer, around your home, your work, on your purse or wallet, anywhere that you associate with prosperity. :))))
