Patchouli Essential Oil (Aged 5 Year) (Pogostemon cablin) - Indonesia

Scents of Earth
$21.25

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.

What separates our 2 year from our 5 year is simply the aging process. The longer the process, the richer, more full bodied the patchouli essential oil becomes!

Due to a patchouli shortage in India, our amazing, aged patchouli oil is currently imported from Indonesia.

patchouli 5 years aged

Such a good Patchouli! Earthy of course yet delicate. I adore it! Even people who don’t go for Patchouli might like it. Has that just right “sexy”/musky, almost “pearl-clutching” scandalous element going for it too. Get it for sure if you are a Patchouli person!
