  • Patchouli Essential Oil (Pogostemon cablin) from Indonesia is Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil.

    Patchouli Essential Oil, also known as patchouly or pachouli, is processed from a bushy herb in the mint family, with 2 to three foot tall erect stems, which small, pale pinkish flowers that blossom in the late fall. Patchouli is a native plant from the tropical regions of Asia.  Our essential oil is cultivated from Indonesia. Patchouli Essential Oil is extracted by steam distillation of the leaves, but unlike other mints, the cell walls need to be broken down to exude the scent, so the plants are lightly fermented, dried or scalded before processing.

    Patchouli Essential Oil has been a favorite in modern perfumery, especially by countercultural individuals seeking to make their own scents. Many industrial products use patchouli to perfume laundry soaps, air fresheners and paper towels.

    Components of Patchouli Essential Oil include: patchoulol and norpatchoulenol, alpha and beta patchoulene, alpha guaiene, alpha bulnesene, caryophyllene, pogostol, and seychellene. Patchouli does not have menthol content usually associated with the mint family.

    Patchouli Essential Oil is characterized by it’s strong and heady fragrance. In ancient times, patchouli was used as a personal scent for masking odors and repelling insects; as well as a scent added to incense. 

    Starting sometime in the 1700’s, Chinese silk traders traveling to the Middle East used dried patchouli leaves in the packing of their fabrics to prevent moths from laying eggs in their product. The tradition of using patchouli in linen spread into Europe, as it was considered to be a sign of luxury in that era. Queen Victoria’s own linens were perfumed with the fragrance of patchouli.

    Patchouli Essential Oil is a long lasting scent and on the sweet side, so for blending look for top notes and another base to balance the blend as it fades. Good pairing include bergamot, lavender, clary sage, lime, grapefruit, geranium, and cardimom. For an exotic blend try myrrh, vanilla, neroli, or frankincense with patchouli.

    General Safety Considerations:

    • Do not take essential oils internally.
    • Do not apply to eyes, sensitive areas or mucous membranes.
    • Do not apply undiluted to skin (for directions on proper dilution, refer to an aromatherapy text).  A good “rule of thumb” is 2.5% essential oils to 97.5% carrier/base oil (like our Fractionated Coconut Oil) but this ratio can vary depending on oils used, age, skin condition, and several additional factors.
