Patchouli Essential Oil 101
Patchouli Essential Oil is used to treat skin and hair problems (dermatitis, eczema, acne, dry chapped skin, dandruff, oily scalp, and is known to have wound healing and scar reducing properties). Patchouli’s link to sexual desire likely originated from India, where it is used in Tantric sexual practices.
Patchouli oil is derived from a large evergreen perennial that is a close relative of mint, lavender, and sage. Some say the name "patchouli" is derived from the ancient Tamil words "patchai" and "ellai," meaning "green leaf."; others say it comes from the Hindustan word "patchoi," meaning "to scent," referring to its use as a fragrance.
Early European traders actually exchanged one pound of gold for a pound of Patchouli. The Romans used it as an appetite stimulant. In Egypt, it was said that King Tut arranged to have 10 gallons of patchouli oil buried with him in his tomb. Here in the United States, Patchouli is often referred to as the “Hippie Herbal Oil” because it’s strong, musky, earthy and sweet aroma that was once associated with the “flower children” of the 60’s.
