The exotic fragrance of Patchouli instantly transports you to faraway lands - India, Indonesia and the Philippines, where the oil has been valued as a perfume for centuries. The leaves of the Patchouli bush are covered with tiny hairs, each carrying a microscopic globule of essential oil. If the leaves are rubbed, tiny amounts of the thick, dark brown oil are released onto the fingers.
Steam-distilled from the leaves, the aroma of Patchouli is rich, earthy, and woody with a nearly hidden fruity note. Because it is so powerful, only small amounts of the oil are required when making blends. Patchouli adds amazing richness to any aromatherapy treatment.
Patchouli thrives in tropical regions and can be found in Hawaii, regions of Asia and other tropical areas of the world.
Quick and easy recipes:
Patchouli Oil is remarkably versatile – in perfumery and fragrancing applications, Patchouli is a base note that acts as a fixative and gives grounding to a blend.
In skin and hair-care applications, Patchouli is a wonderful staple to have on hand. It is helpful for most skin types ranging from dry, cracked skin all the way to oily skin, helping to regulate the balance of the skin's oil production. Those with eczema, psoriasis, acne, seborrhea and dandruff have found that Patchouli is especially helpful.
Emotionally, Patchouli Oil is calming and grounding. To soothe nervous exhaustion and deep emotional stress, take a bath with 2 drops Patchouli and 4 drops Neroli added to the running water.
Spiritually, it has been used by itself or in blends as an aid to prayer and meditation. Patchouli is felt to create a balanced connection between the body, mind and spirit.
