Next stop in our “Which Soap is Best?” series is Patchouli and Palmarosa! I’ve decided to do these two together as they share many strengths and on many points are almost interchangeable (would you rather smell sweet or earthy?) mountainrose900

Patchouli and Palmarosa are both excellent moisturizers and have a hydrating effect on the skin-perfect for those with dry skin!   They also help keep the skin supple and elastic which can help minimize the appearance of aging (think fighting wrinkles!)

Another way Palmarosa and Patchouli help make you look and feel great is on the cellular level. They are both known aid the formation of new tissue helping to rejuvenate the skin!


Palmarosa and Patchouli are a great choice for those with sensitive and dry skin types. Their scents are distinctly different, however. Patchouli scent is very earthy and used in aromatherapy to combat feelings of depression. Palmarosa,  on the other hand, is a sweet floral scent. It’s used in aroma therapy as a stress reliever.

Free Reign Farm offers two products that contain patchouli essential oil:

Mountain Goat Soap is an excellent moisturizer. It also contains cocoa which is known to be moisturizing to dry sky.

Pick-Your-Scent Lotion comes in a patchouli option for thirsty skin that needs an extra dose of moisture!

Free Reign Farm offers Palmarosa in our Mountain Rose soap for those who prefer sweet rose scent!
