    Botanical Name: Pogostemon patchouli

    Plant Part: Leaf

    Country of Origin: Indonesia

    Patchouli provides an earthy, smoky, spicy and musky scent. Its color ranges from amber to dark brown, will vary from batch to batch.  Due to its strong astringent and cicatrizant properties, may be helpful for loose skin, especially after dieting, used in many anti-wrinkle products.

    In Jeanne Rose’s very instructive book “375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols” she mentions the following:

    “Great in skin care as it regulates cellular tissue, indicated for all aspect of the skin, especially old skin. Also useful for acne and seborrheic eczema. Patchouli is one of the most important and valuable raw materials of the perfume trade. Very good in all soaps and cosmetics.”

    “This is one EO that benefits from long storage.  After long storage, even up to 20 years, the fragrance deepens and becomes rich and alluring.”

    Its diuretic properties are useful in massages in cases of fluid retention and cellulite. Well known to increase libido, considered an aphrodisiac. Relieves effects from insect bites, protects clothes from moths. It is known as a tissue regenerator which helps stimulate regrowth of skin cells and the forming of scar tissue. Heals rough, cracked skin. Useful for treating acne, eczema, fungal infections and scalp disorders including dandruff.

    Blends well with black pepper, clary sage, frankincense, geranium, lavender and myrrh. Flash point: 215F.

    I use this a lot.

    I use Patchouli as a foundation base note in many blends. It is a go-to for me. I like to play with this, try new things. It doesn't smell as rich as hippie patchouli incense. Good for making woody scents, but can be used in other kinds of blends too.

    This Patchouli is dreamy! The scent anchors great in soaps. The essential oils has a sticky think syrup kind of consistency and is a caramel like brown. I will buy this again.
    Great Patchouli

    I am used to dark patchouli, this is lighter and the scent is also not as potent, but still an excellent patchouli. You cannot tell the difference between a light and dark patchouli in soap, so I prefer to buy this patchouli for the price. My patchouli loving customers say my soaps are the best!
    I can't wait!

    I received a sample of this product and it was just heavenly!!!! I cannot wait to order this, I have been waiting for a while for it to be back on stock. I agree with the other's review that you don't need a lot of this, a few drops will take you a long way.
    Don't have to use much

    I'm very happy with how long a bottle of this patchouli EO lasts and the fact that it's that classic patchouli scent my customers look for. A little goes a long way. I'm always hesitant to make patchouli soap because it seems so expensive, but again, a little goes far. I made a batch of lavender, patchouli, and rosemary soap and sold every single one.
    The Perfect Patchouli

    Camden-Grey's Patchouli is my favorite, earthy Patchouli essential oil for my cold process soaps. I use it alone, blended with Orange & Cedarwood, and add it at 10% to almost all of my EO blends to help ground other scents and keep them from fading. It has never accelerated any of my soap recipes.
    Great Patchouli

    This is an excellent patchouli. I use patchouli in my soaps a lot and the price and quality of this oil are the best. Blends great with rose or florals. Not to earthy, musky. Perfect.
    Don't need too much

    I got this to blend with other EO for reducing the scar tissue. Helps to regenerate new skin cells faster.
    Great price, quality results

    For those who haven't used patchouli EO before . . . order now! Great for blends, it adds a very pleasant warm and flowery base note. It is a very strong EO, so use sparingly! (one drop can change the whole blend). Great price, and comparable quality to other suppliers.
    Great for blending

    Strong essential oil scent. It's definitely not everybody's cup of tea straight from the bottle. It smells musty and dirty. Makes you think of dirty socks. HOWEVER, don't be discouraged, because it works wonderfully with other essential oils. That musty sock smell helps ground out mints, lavender, orange, etc and blends into a great scent. Definitely don't judge this essential oil by the first smell!

    Thanks for browsing thru this section which contains answers to many questions that are often asked of us. Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.


    EO = essential oil

    FO = fragrance oil



    Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

    30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
