… Wondering why? Let’s take a closer look at how patchouli essential oil will impact your day:¹
#1 Balances & Grounds
Patchouli essential oil is known for its grounding and mood-balancing qualities. Meaning it fosters you into a state of mind where you can turn those pesky negative thoughts into positive energies.

So if you find your emotions all out of whack, patchouli essential oil is the perfect choice to balance your emotions and keep you grounded.
#2 Relaxing, Positive, & Happy
Patchouli essential oil gives you the feeling of relaxation, happiness, and positivity. That’s because patchouli essential oil releases serotonin, which helps you feel more happy, calm, and full of positivity.
If you find yourself in a negative headspace, patchouli essential oil will welcome more happiness and calm into your day.

What Chakras Is Patchouli Essential Oil Used For?
Chakras are the energy points of your body that regulate all of your body's functions. Chakras affect everything from keeping your emotions in balance, to proper organ function, to keeping your immune system thriving. There are 7 main chakras to your body that are spread out from the base of your spine to the crown of your head.
Here we’ll be focusing on the chakras that patchouli essential oils help heal, balance, and ground.
Clear Your Root Chakra With Patchouli Essential Oil
Your root chakra must be clear and in balance. After all, when we’re grounded we are in our bodies feeling what we need to feel alive! When it's not, you may find yourself in complete imbalance.
When your root chakra is stuck in a state of imbalance, you’ll experience negative effects to your kidneys, nerves, feet, and sense of smell. The good news is with patchouli essential oil you’ll rid yourself of all these negative energies. You’ll feel grounded, secure, full of prosperity, and present in the moment.²

How Do You Safely Use Patchouli Essential Oil?
We can't stress enough at Adoratherapy how important it is that you use our essential oils correctly and safely. So here are some tips for safely using patchouli essential oil:
Safe Essential Oil Skin Application
You should never apply essential oil to your skin in full strength. That’s why when using patchouli essential oil, you should always use it combined with a carrier oil such as jojoba oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil.
Carrier oils work by diluting the strength of essential oils, this creates a mixture that’s moisturizing and less likely to cause skin reactions. To be safe after you’ve mixed the essential oil with a carrier oil, test a patch of your skin with your patchouli essential oil to make sure you're not sensitive to topical application.
The perfect time to enjoy the benefits of this chakra-balancing oil is when:
- You’re in deep meditation
- You want a more meaningful yoga experience
- You need a natural boost of happiness
But this oil smells so good you may want to enjoy it all the time.
Enhance Your Bath
For a full aromatic effect, add a few drops of patchouli essential oil after you’ve finished running your bathwater. As tempting as it is to drizzle it in first, it's best to wait until after you run your bath to add the patchouli oil. This way you’ll get the full results you’re looking for from your essential oil-infused bath.
After adding patchouli essential oil to your bath, you’ll notice your stress melting away. This is the perfect solution for sweet moments of self-care that promote relaxation, stress relief, and intimacy.
