Patchouli

Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) Oil

Patchouli is a bushy tropical herb with pale pink-white flowers. The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the leaves. It has a deep, mossy earthy aroma, well loved by hippies in the 60’s as a perfume (and to mask the smell of marijuana.) Patchouli is a base note and works well as a fixative in blends, helping to anchor more flighty oils to retain their scent in the mix.
