SKU: N/A Category:


Our dark patchouli essential oil has an earthy, slightly sweet, and dark aroma. The patchouli alcohol content is around 33 percent, which is one of the GC markers of a good patchouli. It is not as “grassy” as the light Indonesian patchouli. Cheaper patchouli is available, but the patchouli alcohol content is lower (which can be indicative of adulteration, low quality leaves, or inferior distillation).

Species: Pogostemon cablin Benth. (P. patchouli Pellet), fam. Lamiaceae (Labiatae)
Country of origin: Indonesia
