Patchouli has a warm, earthy aroma with fresh fruit - like tones. Patchouli is a very fragrant herb with soft oval leaves and square stems. It grows from 2 to 3 feet in height and provides an unusual odor that is nonetheless characteristic of patchouli when the leaves are rubbed. The color of the patchouli oil is affected by the distillation machine. 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.

The word Patchouli originated in Hindustan. It has been used in many cultures to prevent the spread of diseases and infections. Patchouli was introduced to the British Culture in the 1820’s for its cleansing abilities. In the 1960’s and 1970’s it became in great demand again in the US and Europe, especially due to the hippie movement. The clothing and fabrics imported from India were identified by the unique patchouli odor because it was used as a moth repellent, hence the association with that movement.
