Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin)
Patchouli has a strong, sweet, spicy and exotic fragrance, with a slightly herbaceous undertone. The aroma can be quite powerful and prone to linger so a little goes a long way.
The patchouli plant is native to Malaysia and India. It is a bushy plant with furry leaves and white flowers that have a purple hue. It grows to about 3 feet tall and needs very fertile ground to thrive.
Patchouli essential oil is obtained from the young leaves which are dried and then fermented before distillation.
Patchouli essential oil is often used in skincare products as it is a superb tissue regenerator and helpful in the re-growth of skin cells and the formation of scar tissue. It also helps reduce the appearance of ‘orange-peel’ skin and is good for rough, cracked skin, sores and wounds.
Patchouli’s deodorising action helps reduce the smell of sweat and cools down inflammation. It is also used to deter moths, bedbugs and insects
Patchouli has a balancing and grounding effect on the mind and emotions and is used for reducing lethargy.
The name patchouli originates from India and has a long history of medical uses throughout India, Malaysia, China and Japan. In the Victorian times dried patchoulis leaves were used to naturally perfume linen and protect it from moths. By the 1960’s the oil had become very fashionable, largely due to its part in the ‘flower power’ era.
