Product Review: Goloka Patchouli Essential Oil

I have been using Patchouli Essential Oil for many years now and it is such an amazing oil. It can be used in a variety of ways. Patchouli is from the Lamiaceae family, which is also known as the deadnettle or mint family. Patchouli is derived from an aromatic herb commonly found in India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, New Guinea, and the Philippines.

I am currently using Goloka Patchouli Essential Oil from India. There were a few bottles of essential oils on sale on my eBay store, but they are now all sold out. However, I will be stocking up on more bottles soon and there are other essential oils still available for sale here if you are interested.

  1. I love the scent. A quick sniff relaxes me immediately and the amazing fragrance fills the room when I put some drops of it into my diffuser.
  2. It is a great essential oil for healing piles (hemorrhoids). A drop of it mixed with a carrier oil is all you need to start reaping the healing benefits.
  3. The earthly features of this essential oil will help you stay grounded and rooted. This is why it is great for relieving symptoms of depression.
  4. If you like creating your own fragrances, this is definitely an oil you would want in the mix.
  5. It is suitable for vegans and has not been tested on animals.
  1. Do not use patchouli oil if you have recently had or will undergo an operation, taking blood thinners, or have a bleeding disorder.
How to Use Patchouli Essential Oil

Like every other essential oil, Patchouli is quite concentrated, so a little goes a long way. You would only need a few drops most of the time. Essential Oils should always be diluted with a carrier oil before skin application. Great carrier oils are grapeseed, coconut, jojoba, and avocado oils.

A great guide is 10ml of carrier oil and 5 drops of your essential oil mixed together. Always remember to shake really to blend the mixture before use.

Product Review: Emporio Armani She

*Affiliate link.

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for some time you would know all about my love for fragrances. I am a perfume lover and I like to collect as many as I can. In the last few years, I have significantly reduced the amount of money I spend on perfumes, but I do like to try a new scent every now and again. One of my latest additions to my ever-growing perfume collection is Emporio Armani She Eau de Parfum. I have had my eye on this fragrance for a while and I am glad to finally have it in my collection.

Emporio Armani She review image

Pineapple, Lime, Tuberose, Mandarin Orange, Pear and Bergamot

Orris Root, Jasmine, Heliotrope, and Lily of the Valley

Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Amber, Musk, Vanilla, and Cedar

Here are my thoughts on this perfume:

  1. I love the rubbery bottle. It is quite cute and it is also sustainable as it is made with 70% less plastic.
  2. The fragrance is light, soft, and feminine. It is great for those who are not into strong/overpowering scents.
  3. It is long-lasting. I have discovered it stays on for a few hours which is good.



I really like Emporio Armani She Eau de Parfum. It smells amazing and stays on for as long as I want it to. I never have to top up the fragrance during the day. If you are after a feminine soft scent to try this year, you can consider this perfume. I think it is great for both day and night, and light enough for all seasons too!
