Quick Overview

This Synergy Essentials 100% pure Patchouli essential oil is steam distilled from leaves grown in Indonesia. This aged extra-fine variety has beautiful floral notes, and brighter overall aroma compared to the Special Dark. Patchouli gets gets better with age, and this wonderful, rich Patchouli oil has aged very nicely!

Botanical Name: Pogostemon cablin

A bushy, aromatic perennial herb in the mint family, Patchouli (also spelled Patchouly) is a native species to the tropical regions of southeastern Asia, specifically the islands of Sumatra and Java in Indonesia and the Philippines.

The leaves are hand picked 2-3 times per year, bundled or baled, and allowed to partially dry in the shade and ferment for a few days before the oil is extracted. The fermentation process softens the plant's cell walls and eases oil extraction.

About the Oil
This dark orange yellow Patchouli essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of plants organically grown in Indonesia.
Aromatherapy Notes
This particular Patchouli has a more predominant floral top note than the 'special dark' extraction, it carries similar notes of mint and deep, warm, well-aged woody undertones.

It blends well with: Rose Absolute, Bergamot, Geranium, Lavender, Myrrh, Ginger, and Ylang-Ylang oil.

This 'extra fine' extraction is enjoyed by people who have never before appreciated the aroma of Patchouli. It has a fantastic, deep aroma not often found in younger Patchouli oils (typically the aromatic compounds gain complexity with age).

Patchouli oil is used as a base note and fixative in perfumery, being a component in many famous perfumes. As a fixative, it slows the evaporation of other, more volatile oils so that their aroma may be released over a longer period of time.

Traditional Uses
The oil has been used in India for years for medicinal purposes, but chiefly as an aphrodisiac and to perfume cloth. The aroma of Patchouli in homespun cloth was so pervasive that garment makers importing their wares were obliged to scent their imitations for the local marketplace.

Treatment of skin conditions (such as oily skin and acne) and stimulating the growth of healthy hair have been the two predominant medicinal uses of Patchouli oil.
