Patchouli Essential Oil - (Aged 5 Year) - Indonesia
Brand : Scents of Earth
We're pleased to have on hand a superior aged Patchouli essential oil! The fragrance of Pogostemon cablin or "patchouli" became popular in the United States during the counter-culture era of the 1960's. For many people who grew up during that period, the aroma has strong associations for better or worse.
Unfortunately, the aroma that was associated with that era was often a product of synthetic formulations or poor distillations and has sometimes given the actual aroma of a well-distilled oil a poor name. In contrast to many store-bought patchouli oils, ours is produced from properly matured leaves that have been distilled in stainless steel vessels. Our aged patchouli displays very soft, subtle, herbaceous notes that few associate with this plant. The plant Pogostemon cablin is an aromatic, herbaceous, perennial shrub, with erect stems, large green leaves and small white-pink flowers. Steam distilled.
Due to a patchouli shortage in India, our amazing, aged patchouli oil is currently imported from Indonesia.

I love this store. Their products are top of the line quality. The Palo Santo stick was a very nice extra. I will always buy my incense and oils from here.
