About the Oil: 100% pure patchouli essential oil, steam distilled from leaves organically grown in India. Patchouli oil has been used in India for years for medicinal purposes, but more often as an aphrodisiac and to perfume cloth. Patchouli was historically used in shipping containers full of fabric to ward against moths. Today it's popular as a perfume or cologne. This is wonderful patchouli, and you can't go wrong with this choice!
Patchouli is thought to be antiseptic, antibiotic, and anti-fungal, but its primary traditional medicinal usage is for conditions such as oily skin and stimulating the growth of healthy hair. It has many therapeutic uses, and has been described as 'very beneficial for the skin and may help prevent wrinkles or chapped skin.' Patchouli is also indicated as a vein tonic, and maybe a digester of toxic material in the body.
Aroma: A sweet yet deep and musty aroma
