Patchouli is one of the most polarizing, pigeonholed, and yet ubiquitous essential oils. Some people want to practically bathe in it and others wrinkle their noses in distaste. The amber or caramel colored oil has a sweet, rich, earthy aroma and it improves with age. Hippies nearly trademarked it back in the 60s and 70s. You can take it back by using it in your own ways.
Patchouli is an ingredient in many essential oil blends and perfumes, though, and has fantastic fixative abilities. It will make your top notes last longer, and round out the hard edges when a little of this is used. It's like the photobombing essential oil. You create a theme based on something else and a little Patchouli sneaks in. You may not notice it at all overtly unless you're really looking for it.
The Patchouli plant is a green, leafy, perennial herb, and you might not think such a powerful smell could come from it by looks. It is grown and used in tropical Asia and has a multitude of uses. The essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves.
Patchouli is nontoxic, non-irritant, and non-sensitizing, making it very suitable for skin application.
