This is for a 15ml. 1/2 fl. oz, bottle of 100% pure Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) Certified Organic Essential Oil.
Patchouli essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of an Asian perennial evergreen in the mint family. The oil is widely used in perfumery and incense making, and its earthy scent is used in aromatherapy to release feelings of self-doubt and promote a sense of balance.
Patchouli oil has been used for centuries in China and Japan to address various inflammatory skin issues. The oil contains several unique organic compounds that are responsible for its scent as well as its anti-inflammatory activity. One of these, a sesquiterpene alcohol referred to as patchouli alcohol or PA, is used in the production of the chemotherapy drug Taxol.
In the 1800s, the scent of patchouli oil emanating from imported fabrics from the east became a marker of quality. So much so that European exporters scented their products with patchouli oil to instill confidence in their quality. The oil is still used today to deter moths and other pests from infesting fabrics while in shipment.
In ancient Rome and Egypt, patchouli oil was considered so valuable that it was once literally equal to its weight on gold. It was apparently a particular favorite of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, better known as King Tut, whose body was reputedly laid to rest in a tomb containing 10 gallons of patchouli oil.
Patchouli is a wonderful, rich, grounding, earthy, warm and woody essential oil with many uses from skin care to nervous system balance.
Patchouli is often used in insect repellent recipes, for acne, chapped skin, dermatitis, mature skin and stress relief. Its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, deodorant and tonic properties make patchouli essential oil a valuable oil for any home.
Useful for restoration, invigoration, assurance, lucidity and like a fine wine, patchouli oil improves with age!
Using patchouli may reduce tension, mood swings, depression, indecision and anxiety
