Product Details

Name: Patchouli

Scientific Name: Pogostemon cablin

Method of extraction: Steam distillation

Part of plant: Leaves

Country of origin: Indonesia

Patchouli essential oil is derived from the leaves of the patchouli plant, which is native to Southeast Asia. It has a deep, musky, and earthy aroma that is often used in perfumes, colognes, and other fragrances.

Patchouli essential oil is also known for its relaxing and grounding properties, making it a popular choice for use in aromatherapy especially in homemade perfumes. It is often used in skincare products for its ability to help soothe and moisturize the skin, and is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, Patchouli essential oil can be blended with carrier oils and used topically for massage and other therapeutic purposes.

The difference between Patchouli and Patchouli Dark essential oil lies in the distillation process. Patchouli essential oil is produced by steam distilling the leaves of the Patchouli plant, while Dark Patchouli essential oil is derived from a longer distillation process where the leaves and stems of the plant are distilled together. This longer process produces an oil that is darker in color and has a deeper, more earthy aroma than Patchouli essential oil. Dark Patchouli essential oil is often preferred by perfumers and aromatherapists for its more intense scent and therapeutic properties.
