  1. I have a neighbour who is a bit of an old hippy! Lovely, lovely lady and I enjoy spending time with her out in the garden sometimes hearing her stories, she is always wearing patchouli oil, when I read the properties of patchouli and got to think how amazing this oil is. It’s a bit strong for me though, so hopefully I’m picking up some of the benefits just by living next door to her.

    • Sounds like you have an awesome neighbour Anna. Wonder if she uses the oil undiluted and maybe that’s why you finding it a bit strong? Absolute benefits from just inhaling it from what she is wearing – what a win. Have a glorious day hon. 🙂 xoxo
