It has been used in treatments for obesity possibly because of unsubstantiated reports that it induces loss of appetite and possibly because it reduces fluid retention However it is an antidepressant and I think it is more likely that Patchouli may help with weight loss because it helps the underlying anxiety and depression from which so many fat people suffer In fact it is helpful for all forms of depression anxiety and stressrelated conditions

Amazing addition to your collection of essential oils, earth, the musky exotic aroma really helps to balance a blend that is using lots of high notes to give you a rounded finish.
