Essential Oil - Patchouli
Organic patchouli essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of Pogostemon cablin. This base note has a smoky and earthy aroma that is often found in deodorants, skin care, and aromatherapy products. It is considered to improve with age, and you can find many different colors and aroma profiles on the market. If you do not like the aroma of a certain distillation now, you may love it later. Patchouli oil blends well with sandalwood, jasmine, cedarwood, or lavender.
