Description

Description

We use patchouli oil for its relaxing, uplifting effect on the mind. In a solid stick deodorant such as Aromaco it has an anti-bacterial, cooling and drying effect on the skin, as well as giving a long lasting fragrance. The two important components of the essential oil are patchoulol and norpatchoulenol. It is also very kind to irritated skin.

Though native to tropical parts of Asia, it is now cultivated elsewhere including Indonesia, China and the Philippines. Our patchouli is sourced from Indonesia and India. The patchouli plant can grow up to about three feet tall and has long stems with purple or white flowers. The harvested crop is then dried, and the oil is extracted from the dried grass via a process of steam distillation.
