Oil Summary: Patchouli Dark Oil is produced by direct steam distillation of the properly dried leaves of Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) (Benth) (Lamiaceae). When the patchouli is distilled using iron vats, the end product is called “dark”; when it is distilled using stainless steel vats, the end product is called “light”. This is because, when using iron vats, metallic ions are released in to the oil which darken the color. Patchouli light has a lighter aroma, color and is known to fade more quickly. Patchouli essential oil became very popular during the “hippie generation” of the sixties and was used as an incense or natural perfume. There are those who believe patchouli essential oil to be overpowering and unpleasant. However, if used correctly and sourced from a reputable manufacturer, it can be quite subtle and more grounding. Patchouli essential oil may be the only essential oil that improves with age, with the aroma becoming deeper, smoother and less pungent over time.

Patchouli essential oil can be a sedative at low doses and stimulating at higher doses, so the amount you include will determine the outcome of your blends. Therapeutically, it is known to possess antiseptic, astringent, antidepressant, carminative and anti-inflammatory properties. Use sparingly!
