A warm, earthy, fruity aroma, Patchouli is one of our most polarising essential oils. Therapeutically, it is well known for its grounding and balancing properties.
Patchouli has been used as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. It also became very popular during the ’60s and 70’s when hippies would wear this oil as a perfume or aftershave. Even today, many customers ask for Patchouli, as it takes them back to their youth and evokes memories of times gone by.
This earthy essential oil is unique to a lot of others on the market in that, just like fine wine, it improves with age. Over time, its colour will deepen, the aroma will intensify and its medicinal qualities will enhance.
Therapeutically, Patchouli essential oil works to relieve tension and anxiety as well as provide nourishment to dry and irritated skin. Apply one drop of Patchouli directly to mosquitos or other insect bites to help alleviate the sting and itch.
The grounding, soothing properties of this oil also help to quieten the mind, so it is very popular in meditation and aiding sleep.
Patchouli blends well with most essential oils. We particularly like combining it with Sandalwood and Frankincense for creating a deep grounding effect. It is also often blended with Ylang Ylang as an aphrodisiac for rekindling a jaded relationship.

Have your essential oils or products been tested on animals?
Absolutely not! We pride ourselves on being a completely cruelty-free brand. In addition, all our Zea Relief products have not and will not ever be tested on animals.
Your essential oils cost less than other brands, how can you offer such low prices?
Zea Relief have established long-standing relations with their essential oil producers over the past 25 years. We pass this experience on to consumers in the form of affordable pricing.
We use the same quality essential oils as other companies; we just choose to price our essential oils with the best interest of our customers in mind. By not marking up our essential oils, as many competitors do, we can offer premium quality oils at an affordable price.
Can you guarantee the quality of your essential oils?
Yes we can. With over 20 years of experience in the aromatherapy and essential oil industry, we have a lot of confidence in our supplies from all over the world. We only sell 100% pure essential oils.
Is the quality of Zea Relief Essential Oils the same as Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) companies?
Absolutely. In fact, in a lot of cases, we actually source our premium essential oils from the same farmers as a lot of the major essential oil corporations from around the world.
The only real difference between us and well-known brands on the market is that it is only us – a small Australian family business – with over 25 years experience in essential oils. This understanding of the industry is why we can sell our premium essential oils at such an affordable price.
Are your essential oils diluted or watered down in any way?
No. Every essential oil on our website is 100% pure.
