Essential oil: Patchouli


Patchouli essential oil (Pogostemon cablin) has been popular for decades…I mean really, if you want to be “officially crunchy” it’s pretty much a prerequisite to use before you can be admitted into the club. But other than covering up hippie body odor (which it does very well), it’s actually used for many other things as well. Its aroma is very rich and earthy, with an herbal and balsamic scent. It’s also a kind of “love it or hate it” oil, and you’ll likely find people drawn to it or absolutely repulsed.
