Plant and Oil Description

Popularized during the 1960s and 1970s Woodstock era, patchouli is often referred to as the “scent of the sixties”. Patchouli is an herb belonging to the mint family, and is originally from tropical southeast Asia. The plant has been used for centuries to create spicy-sweet incense in East Asian culture, and the modern perfume industry has also capitalized on this naturally musky aroma. The plant is bedecked with pale pink blossoms and its leaves and stems are covered with dense hairs. The essential oil is extracted from the leaves through a steam distillation process, allowing it to be used for a wide variety of aromatherapy and homeopathic practices.


What’s it Good For?

  1. Anti-inflammatory – Several promising studies suggest that patchouli oil features robust anti-inflammatory capabilities and associated pain-relieving benefits. Apply to the affected areas with a carrier oil. Use with other essential oils featuring similar anti-inflammatory properties, such as SenseLAB’s myrrh, black pepper, frankincense, and cedarwood oils, to enhance the anti-inflammatory effects.
  2. Sleep – Inhaling the aroma of patchouli oil may have sedative properties that can help promote a restful night’s sleep. Add to a diffuser and place under your pillow before bedtime.
  3. Insect repellent and insecticide – Store-bought insect repellents and insecticides have chemical additives that can be harmful to your health and the environment. Using a natural insect repellent, like SenseLAB’s patchouli oil, is a safer alternative to chemical repellents. Patchouli oil is particularly effective against mosquitos, and can also be used as an insecticide to ward off house flies and ants. 
  4. Sun protection and antiaging skin care  Patchouli oil may offer protection against ultraviolet radiation, increase collagen production, and minimize wrinkles. Add to your daily moisturizer or create your own serum with a carrier oil and other anti-aging essential oils like rose geranium and rosehip oil.

Excellent quality

Glorious! I have said it and I hold this brand of essential oils is liquid gold. Its quality is 100% natural. Its fragrance is lasting. I make soaps and patchouli oil is used to highlight different combinations but my problem is not all those that say patchouli are of a pleasant aroma. With this in the perfect nail. I recommend it.

Patchouli scent is exactly as it should be. Excellent!!

This SenseLab Patchouli oil has quite a strong scent to it and it is a very familiar scent to me. Patchouli is one of those old school scents we had around in the 70s (along with Passion fruit and strawberry). I prefer this brand as it is not quite as overpowering as some other brands I have tried. The oil is obviously pure and it works great in the diffuser, bath bombs, and soap. The cost is prohibitive from a business standpoint for soap making but I will use it in bath bombs and enjoy it in my diffuser necklace for sure. A+ product.

Good quality and great for diffusing

Very potent essential oil. Its TRUE to how it should smell and isnt diluted with other carrier oils compromising the purity. Its sealed nice and tight so no leaking in shipping occurs and opens with ease. Pleased with this purchase!

Perfect patchouli scent.. Not moldy.

I have to say, this is the best patchouli scent I have found in liquid form. All of the others I have smelled have a moldy odor scent to them. I dont know why. This one has the good old fashioned scent. Im going to use it with my reed defuser. I only wish the bottle was a
