12ml Patchouli (pogostemon cablin)
Method of extraction: Steam distilled
Rich earthy, woody, balsamic, spicy and exotic!
The "hippy" essence of the essential oil world.
Used as a favourite "natural perfume" by the hippies in the 60's and 70's.
Useful antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti fungal properties also said to be calming.
Has been used for centuries as an ingredient in perfumes, and perhaps more recently in the manufacture of incense and insect repellents.
This is a base note oil and is one of the few essential oils that actually improves with age, along with Myrrh, Sandalwood and Frankincense.
