    Botanical Name: Pogostemon patchouli

    Plant Part: Leaf

    Country of Origin: Indonesia

    Method of Extraction: Steam Distillation

    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.

    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!
    Very earthy and nice in perfumes
    I use this in several of my blends. It's a must have. It's sort of a musty earthy scent. When my sister was over the last time she smelled a perfume that I had used this heavily in and she said it reminded her of enchanted old castles and made her feel happy. For many people, it takes them back to the seventies. Either way, it's a peaceful soothing smell that I didn't expect to like, but it's really grown on me. It adds lasting power to any perfume if you use it as a base and it blends nicely with spicy and citrus.
    VERY strong scent!
    This patchouli oil is very very strong. A little goes a looong way. It's a little "dirtier" smelling than other patchouli oils I've tried, and slightly less spicy. It blends well with grapefruit, bergamot, and ylang ylang, though.
    Beautiful Patchouli Oil...
    I love it! I've purchased both this Patchouli Oil, as well as the other "Wildcrafted Patchouli" from this site. I like both of them, very, very much. I bought the other one last time, and I'm buying this one this time. I can't choose between the two of them. They are both very nice, and so far, I love them equaly. I will always buy my essential oils from Camden Grey. All of the oils I've tried are of very high quality. The prices truely can't be beat either. I am thankful to have found Camden Grey! Thank You :)
    great stuff
    nice -- deep, dark and earthy
    My Favorite
    What can I say, I love this dark rich thick patchouli. A little goes a long way. In cp soap it mellows nicely with age. I use it in so many products I make. Highly recommended.
    Patchouli Love
    Oh, this Patchouli Essential Oil is just wonderful! I have tried a few others from another supplier. This one seems to have such a satisfying balance and is very rich without being overpowering or too musky. I am very pleased!
    Best Patchouli Oil - Love It!
    Had a friend that requested I make a soap w/ this oil and I have been dying to because it has always been one of my favs. Oh boy! I only used .5oz in 2lbs of soap (I like a light scent), and it performed wonderfully! The scent isn't overkill and strong like some other patchouli I have used. Oh that musky scent is there - don't get me wrong - but its a nice deep scent; however, not overly assaulting on the nose. It leaves a nice hint of patchouli on you after washing. I highly recommend this oil. I look forward to using this oil again in my soapmaking.
    My love!!
    1 of my FAV!! Love the smell and the benefits it brings. And it is true it get better with age. Makes my skin BEAUTIFUL! Heals my scars well. Love using this in a scrub as well. Great for my hair!! Look forward to experimenting with this a lot more! The price you can't beat! Thank you & love Camden Grey!
    Patchouli doesn't get any better than this!
    I have a customer that is a patchouli purist and he absolutely goes bananas over this fragrance. Last forever, a little goes a long way - blends well with pretty much everything.
