(Pogostemon cablin)

.5 oz. (15ml)


Patchouli essential oil is mostly known for its strong, unique scent, but most are unaware of the multiple properties found in the plant which have numerous benefits for the skin. It is derived from a large evergreen perennial that is a close relative to the lavender, mint and sage family. It  originates from Southeast Asia. Today, it’s cultivated in China, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, and the Philippines, but also grows in South America and other tropical regions like Hawaii. Patchouli oil is extracted from the lightly fragrant leaves and the flowers of the plant. It’s a thick, light yellow or brown liquid, with a strong, musky, slightly sweet aroma, reminiscent of wet soil. Most either love or detest the scent. Interestingly enough, though, the scent varies from person to person depending upon body chemistry, which is one of the beauties of using essential oils for your choice of parfum.  Not only does Patchouli have unique fragrant properties, it has been used for centuries to treat health conditions. Early Europeans traded Patchouli for gold, pound per pound. It has been documented  that Pharaoh Tutankhamun – also known as King Tut – arranged to have 10 gallons of patchouli oil buried with him in his tomb.   Listed below are just a few of the many modern day uses of the oil.  It is known to treat…

  •  skin and hair problems
  • dermatitis
  • eczema
  • acne
  • dry chapped skin
  • dandruff, oily scalp
  • wound healing and scar reducing properties
  • fabric fragrance
  • moth repellent
  • aromatherapy to relieve stress, anxiety and depression
