In Hoodoo folk magic, alkanet root was often mixed with patchouli for success in all money and financial matters. We've added sandalwood, jasmine, bergamot and rosemary, for a woodsy, grounding scent. Alkanet root is said to reduce scaring as well as protect the skin from the sun. (This is NOT a substitute for sunscreen) Patchouli is a grounding, calming oil, known to ease stress and stabilize the mood. The base is moisturizing honey and safflower powder.
