Patchouli Essential Oil (1/2 oz)
The color of Patchouli oil is affected by the distillation process. If distillation is done in a stainless steel vessel the color of the oil will be light, but if done in an iron vessel the color will be darker.
Distinctly herbaceous and musky in aroma, a good Patchouli Oil has a satisfying earthy quality, that is great to “ground” a person. It is a very rich and long-lasting oil. The aroma can be rather crude when the oil is young and grows more refined with age, as it becomes a valued ” vintage oil “. The scent of Patchouli will linger longer than most other Essential Oils, and should be used sparingly.
Other properties of the oil include being a Antidepressant, Anti-Inflammatory, Antiseptic, Antiviral, Aphrodisiac, Astringent, Carminative, Deodorant, Fungicidal and Stimulant.
