What a groovy bar, man! This scented bar was due to multiple customer requests for a "Patchouli Bar." I used the Ylang Ylang to soften and tone down the Patchouli's strong, spicy base notes. Men and women alike find this bar very appealing. Peace, man, and dig the Patchouli/Ylang Ylang bar! Patchouli essential oil is most known as the oil of the 60's, but is also helpful in healing cracked or inflamed skin, acne, dermatitis, and eczema as well as tightening and toning the skin. It also helps regulate oily skin and dandruff. Ylang Ylang essential oil is known as an antidepressant, relaxant to the body, mind, and spirit, and is a reputed aphrodisiac. It calms anger, releases tension, lifts depression, and stabilizes mood swings. Ylang Ylang is also most helpful to oily skin by combating the bacteria that contribute to acne.
