AUM on the GO: What is Patchouli?
Patchouli is the aroma for Faculty 19, The Student. But what is Patchouli? Patchouli has lots of benefits: it's skin healing, grounding, cooling, supportive in meditation and helps as an insect repellent! Gina Flores of Essential Body Wisdom chats about Patchouli in this week's AUM on the GO! video. Want more? Check out Gina's original AUM Aroma inspired by Faculty 19, and designed specifically for Studio Anya and The Sagebook. Beautiful Vintage Patchouli vibrates in this blend of citrus and spice, to merge the triad of forces at work in the subtle body: the creative force of the navel chakra, the balancing force at the heart chakra and the transcendental force of the crown chakra.
