Patchouli Pogostemon cablin - Indonesia
Essential Oil - 5mL
Patchouli essential oil is obtained by the steam distillation of the leaves. It can be described as having a woodsy, earthy, musky scent. If you are used to imitation patchouli fragrance oils you may not know what the true oil smells like. Patchouli essential oil blends well with many other oils, and marries the oils together, without being overpowering, adding a smooth base note. Bergamot, Clary Sage, Jasmine, Palmarosa, and Ylang Ylang I are often used in blends with Patchouli, but Ginger, Sweet Orange and spice oils are also good possibilities. Patchouli has a reputation for treating skin conditions such as eczema and acne, as a fixative in perfumes, rejuvenating aging skin, and conditioning dry hair.
