Our therapeutic quality, pure Patchouli Essential Oil is steam distilled from the aromatic leaves of Pogostemon cablin, a bushy plant that is native to Asia and is cultivated in Indonesia.
Aromatically, Patchouli Essential Oil possesses a rich, sweet, earthy aroma. It acts as a base note within fragrancing applications and can help serve as a natural fixative. It blends beautifully with many other essential oils and aromas especially those within the wood, citrus, floral, spicy, balsamic and resinous families. It is wonderfully suited for both men and women. Aromatically, a little goes a long way. Even if you find the aroma of Patchouli Essential Oil to be a bit too earthy or intense on its own, do practice blending it in small proportions with other aromatics as the outcome can be quite wonderful.
Emotionally, Patchouli Essential Oil is very grounding, supports a peaceful mind and helps encourage a calm outlook and positive mindset. It is said that it can act as an aphrodisiac.
