Over the ages, Patchouli has been a plant that opens passion in the minds, makes them more open to love, creates sensuality and helps to feel it. Patchouli is a real passion plant that helps even the most closed person to become sensual and sexual. Burn Patchouli essential oil in oil lamps, when you wish to prepare your mind for spending some quality time with your lover or focus more on love. It’s especially useful when you wish to get answers to love-related questions from a pendulum, you wish to see visions about your lover or future lover in meditation or simply to awaken the energy of passion in you.

I recommend Patchouli essential oil for people who are not sexually-that active or who in general don’t have sexual interest. Sexuality is part of a person and is something everyone should have in a healthy way. Lack of sexuality will lead to the closing of the Root Chakra energy channel that in turn causes a lot of different mental and physical problems. One of the most serious problems that come from closing the Root Chakra energy channel is infertility and reproductive organ illnesses and, of course, weakening of the immune system.
