PATCHOULI Essential Oil | Sustainably Harvested
If you are like many, Patchouli may have been your introduction to essential oils when you were first searching for your own unique signature perfume. This Indian Patchouli is one of the loveliest, top-grade Patchoulis available today. This oil has a much finer and fuller odor than those Patchoulis that have not been given proper time to age and develop. Patchouli has an extremely rich, sweet-herbaceous, aromatic, spicy and woody-balsamic odor. There is an almost wine-like ethereal floral sweetness in the top notes and this sweetness remains throughout all of the stages of dryout.
Patchouli, like Vetiver, Sandalwood, Cedar and Frankincense is a perfume fixative. A fixative is a necessary component of a perfume, with its rich and deep scent and the power of holding top and middle notes to the skin for long periods. Patchouli has long been used for beautifying the skin. Aside from being a famous perfume, it is added to many skin lotions and potions. It has the ability as a soothing tonic to restore your skin’s youthful glow and grace. It can be very effective in calming and clearing red and upset adolescent skin. It is also used in solution of a carrier oil to apply to nails which may be suffering from yellowing or cracking.
As for the mind, Patchouli is first thought of for its sensual power in creating an amorous atmosphere. Adding Patchouli to your diffuser along with Ylang-ylang, Bergamot and Frankincense will create a sweet space to become uplifted and adored.

Massage or Perfume Oil: Patchouli's aroma is rich, sensuous and earthy. Being a very strong base note, it can easily overtake other oils. For perfumery and fixative purposes, when combining essential oils, it is recommended to limit patchouli to 5% or less of the total oil content. Start with one drop and let some time pass before adding more to your blend. Once you like your essential oil blend, you may add to a few ounces of your favorite carrier oil. This mixture can be used for a massage, or you may just rub a few drop of it onto your wrists for perfume or use it as a light deodorant.

Eco-Projects in India
Our selection of essential oils from India are pure, wild-harvested, and ethically sourced — and play an important role in economic improvement for rural agricultural areas. Produced in geographically and ecologically diverse regions, our selection ranges from luscious florals from the tropics to high altitude Lavender from the Himalayas. As unique high-value crops, plants used for essential oil production include aromatic grasses, medicinals, exotic flowers, and more. These oils represent the opportunity to continue long traditions of agrarian culture that are increasingly being lost to modernization.
