Product Abstract: Patchouli is a very fragrant herb with soft oval leaves and square stems. It grows from 2 to 3 feet in height and provides an unusual odor that is nonetheless characteristic of patchouli when the leaves are rubbed. It became very popular throughout the British Empire when silks and cashmere shawls from India were packed with Patchouli to discourage insects during shipping, the scent being the final proof of origin. Genuine India Ink was also scented with it. Patchouli improves with age, and the aged oil is what is preferred over that which is freshly harvested. In aromatherapy and perfumery, Patchouli provides an excellent fixative that can help extend other, more expensive oils. The color of the oil is affected by the distillation machine; if the young leaves are distilled in a stainless steel vessel, the oil will be light, but if done in an iron vessel, the color will be dark.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

I never knew there was a light and dark patchouli until I ordered this one! I love the scent of this light patchouli, it doesn't smell less than the dark but has a slightly different scent that for some reason reminds me of rootbeer. I am ordering more of this for sure as I just ran out.

I'm not a huge fan of patchouli, probably because I associate it with the smell of old hippy sweat and marijuana. Based on other reviews, I decided to give this one a try. I'm very glad I did as this oil is much lighter than the more common patchouli scent. I can see how it should blend well with other oils without being overwhelming. Excellent quality and great price!

This is a great quality oil. I have discovered I am not a big fan of the scent. I made M&P soaps with this and the people that like patchouli really liked this one. A little goes a long way. It is a very earthy scent. I like that it is affordable enough that I can try the other kinds as well :)

It's a great herbaceous base when not over-used. I enjoy using it to bring together floral and citrus scents.

I bought this EO to make a custom CP soap for a friend who loves patchouli. I was surprised to discover that it makes a great base note in so many different types of blends. It's now a staple for me. And my friend adored her CP soap!

I've never been a huge patchouli fan, but my partner is so I ordered the light. It's alright to me but still has that dusty and dry smell I really dislike. However, other people love it and it really works well in blends. Peppermint and patchouli light have been a staple in my partner's cabinet for months now. I'm still learning to appreciate it, but I'm going to order the dark next to see what happens!

I like the lighter scent. Some people don't like Patchouli on it's own. Mixes well with other scent for staying power. Behaves perfectly in col process soap. Need very little for melt and pour.

This EO has done very well in my M&P soap. I added it with a few other EO's to make an earthy/musky/romantic scent for men and its selling faster than I can make it. Will be trying the "dark" patchouli next :)

Patchouli is yet a staple scent for me. I love it in soaps and just on it's own diffused. I find it to be another romantic scent. I find this oil very calming and earthy.

Normally Patchouli gives me a headache but Patchouli Light doesn't. I love mixing it with other essential oils when I feel like I need more grounding or want to add an earthy yet not overpowering element to my overall scent.

I ordered Patchouli light thinking it would be the 'Patch' of the early 70's that I used to wear. It isn't. So I ordered the Patchouli Dark. Eureka!! So if you are looking for the old hippie smell, it's the other one. :-)

Overall, patchouli is one of my favourite scents. Unfortunately, many people do not feel that way about patchouli. However, anytime I wear this patchouli, I get a lot of compliments, and seem to hear a lot of sniffing going on around me ! *lol* Like with most patchoulis, a little goes along way, and when I mix it with some South African lavender, I hear even more sniffing going on around me! I've always liked hearing, 'you smell great', but lately, I've been hearing that phrase a lot more. Thanks NDA!

This Patchouli is lovely, but it does smell very young to me. I did accomodate for this and I ordered a large quantity that I can age myself while I use the rest of my beautiful, complex and old patchouli. I am benefitting from the 'green-ness' of this oil in that I can use much more of it in my skin care applications without that overwhelming, incredibly recognizable "patchouli smell".
