Common Name: Patchouli
Latin Name: Pogostemon cablin
Aroma: Deep and warm undertones from this oil fill the nose with an exotic earthiness and a hint of spice. While most patchouli essential oils tend to overwhelm me, this one is quite lovely and almost soft. The resinous and woody aroma is absolutely stunning. It is a beautiful oil to use as a fixative/base note in your blends.
