Patchouli essential oil is extracted from the leaves which are dried and fermented prior to steam distillation and is dark brown in colour.
Indian patchouli oil has a sweeter smell compared to the more earthy, traditional Indonesian patchouli oil. It has a grounding, balancing, calming scent and provides numerous health benefits, making it ideal for therapeutic use in cosmetics, aromatherapy, and cleaning products.
This anti-inflammatory oil can also reduce fevers and colds by eliminating infectious bacteria, and has been used as an aphrodisiac for hundreds of years.
Botanical Name: Pogostemon Cablin
