Patchouli (Indonesian) Light Essential Oil


Patchouli (Indonesian) Light Essential Oil 100% Pure and Natural (Aromatherapy)


100% Pure Patchouli (Indonesian) Essential Oil (Pogostemon Cablin).  

Patchouli (Indonesian) essential oil is extracted from the leaves of the herb which are dried and fermented prior to steam distillation. It is dark brown in colour and has an earthy, smokey aroma.

Our Patchouli oil is known as “light” Patchouli oil as it is the result of using stainless steel to distil the essence of the Patchouli plant.  “Dark” Patchouli oil is distilled in iron vats and is thicker with a heavier aroma.  Light Patchouli oil is general preferred for use in soaps and diffusers in particular due to a more subtle, gentler aroma. 

The Indonesian variety (as opposed to the Indian variety) of Patchouli oil, is the more commonly known and used form, possessing a more savoury, muskier aroma than it's Indian counterpart. 

Patchouli oil is known to be effective in helping to combat stress, anxiety, and bouts of depression.  It is also used as an aphrodisiac, and to counteract bad odours, and as such is often used as a natural deodorant.  

Other benefits include preventing infection, reducing inflammation, and improving circulation.
