Emotionally, patchouli essential oil is also said to connect one to their own body, helping a person release patterns of shame or "not enough-ness", and feel more self-love and acceptance towards their physical self. It does this by acting as a grounding support, helping you to reconnect with and settle into your body. In this way it compliments exercises that encourage body mindfulness, such as tai chi or yoga asanas. It can also help to relieve feelings of anxiousness or stress, the things we often feel when we begin to disassociate and feel ungrounded or unbalanced.
