Characteristics of Patchouli Essential Oil

The instantly recognisable “hippy oil”. An earthy, musky, herbaceous base note gives way to a sweet and spicy top note. Unlike many essential oils, Patchouli matures with age.

However as well as clearing the mind, basil is typically used in the following applications.


Patchouli is skin softening and useful on cracked skin within a cosmetic blend. The skin softening properties make Patchouli suitable for anti-ageing products.


Patchouli promotes a feeling of relaxation and can often be found in incense sticks. It is the original “Hippy Oil” and so is associated with relaxation, happiness, anxiety relief and and de-stressing.
Patchouli oil is thought to supress the apetite when burnt or used in skin preparations. Making it the ideal oil to use in oil burners when on a diet.
