Smell is closely related to memory, and fragrances can bring about emotional feelings which can catch you by surprise. If you try to figure out where that flash came from you may be at a loss.
The sense of smell acts mostly on a subconscious level and we are often unaware of the many odors in our environment as we go about our lives. Odors work through associations and often people find their creativity is enhanced with certain scents and find it fascinating but don't consciously have an explanation.
Patchouli has a powerful action on our psyche and brings a sense of sacredness of life. Its earthy smell can stimulate and strengthen the nervous system and act almost like a sedative for anxiety. Reaching deep into our emotions, this oil dispels sexual tensions and has become known as an aphrodisiac.
Containing a healing agent, patchoulene, patchouli is also recommended for healing inflamed skin conditions and wound care. Its skin rejuvenating properties help mature skin maintain its suppleness, therefore is often seen in moisturizing creams.
Body sprays are a pleasant, refreshing, yet personal statement in a body care routine. If the strength of colognes and perfumes come on a bit too strong, then a light body spray would be ideal.
Combine the "scent of change, the scent of peace" with the upbeat, cheery freshness of tangerine and you may be one step ahead of emotional situations that tend to confuse our good judgement.
Patchouli is known to be a helpful bug deterrent, therefore this spray may come in handy during outdoor music events or gatherings. Just be aware that as with all the essential oils in the citrus family, tangerine is known to be photosensitive. What this means is to be careful with sun exposure. You don't want to encourage a sunburn.
