We offer pungently aromatic cut and sifted patchouli leaf. Patchouli is a member of the mint family found growing in southeast Asia. The name patchouli also refers to the oil of the patchouli plant. There are several species of the pogostemon genus whose oil is used to make patchouli oil, but that of pogostemon cablin is believed to be superior. Patchouli has been used for centuries and was even used during the silk trade to keep moths from laying their eggs in clothing. But it became considerably more popular during the Hippy movement. The uniquely pungent smell of patchouli also met a convenient use by Deadheads who realized it could help mask the scent of marijuana. Even today, hippies, among others, use patchouli as a perfume, an aromatherapy oil and a hair conditioner for dreadlocks. Aside from these uses, patchouli is an insect repellant. It has been used medicinally for common ailments such as colds, headaches, diarrhea, abdominal pain and nausea. It can help with skin care, including conditions such as acne, scars, eczema and wrinkles. WE ALSO OFFER GENUINE PATCHOULI SEEDS
