Patchouli Essential Oil (Dark)

RatingRatingRatingRatingRating
Average Product Rating: 4.9 / 5 (Based on 95 Customer Reviews)



Main Constituents:
Patchoullol: 32.92%

Botanical Name: Pogostemon Cablin

Plant Part: Leaves

Extraction Method: Steam Distilled

Origin: Indonesia

Description: 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. The color of the patchouli oil is affected by the distillation machine. If distillation is done in a stainless steel vessel the color of the oil will be light, but if done in an iron vessel the color will be darker.

Color: Golden orange to dark reddish brown viscous liquid.

Common Uses: Patchouli is recognized by aromatherapists as being effective for combating nervous disorders, helping with dandruff, sores, skin irritations and acne. The specific properties include use as an antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anti-emetic, antimicrobal, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, antitoxic, antiviral, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal, carminative, deodorant, digestive, diuretic, febrifuge, fungicidal, nerving, prophylactic, stimulating and tonic agent. In the perfumery industry, it is interesting to note that Patchouli improves with age, and that the aged product is what is preferred over freshly harvested. In aromatherapy, Patchouli is an excellent fixative that can help extend other, more expensive oils.

Consistency: Thick

Note: Base

Strength of Aroma: Medium

Blends well with: Sandalwood, Bergamot, Cedarwood, Rose, Orange, Cassia, Myrrh and Opoponax

Aromatic Scent: Patchouli has a warm, earthy aroma with fresh fruit - like tones.

History: Before it became popular in Europe, Indian shawls and Indian ink were identified by the unique patchouli odor.

Cautions: None Known.

I am new to patchouli and I am not too fond of the earthy smell, but mixed with blood orange and orange 5-fold in CP soap, it provides a deep and lovely scent.

Wonderful, strong, rich fragrance from this dark patchouli. It doesn't smell too great out of the bottle (even in dilution), but on exposure to air, it transforms into a rich and earthy smell. I suspect this is why people say that Patchouli gets better with age. In hot or cold process soap, however, you need not age it in the bottle since the finished bars age while exposed to air. A few days is enough. Blends fantastically with sweet orange 5-fold.

Absolutely the MOST AMAZING and lovely Patchouli I have smelled in 30 years! The first whiff I got of it took me back to the first time I smelled a REALLY good, expensive Patchouli and fell totally in love with it... just fabulous! Smells wonderful in my CP soap and blends well - sticks very well in CP soap too - quite long-lasting, and a little goes a long way. I need less of this oil than I do of most other essential oils when soapmaking, as it is a good strong scent. (Love it as a perfume and in various other things I make for myself - I LOVE a good Patchouli!) I am SO glad I took a chance on the 16 oz bottle - I only dared because of the many excellent reviews that gave me the confidence to try it. I consider myself to be somewhat of a Patchouli connoisseur, since it has been my favorite essential oil and only "perfume" I've used for nearly 35 years, and this is definitely among the best I've ever come across. (I'm reviewing the "Dark" Patchouli)

Probably my favorite all time EO, definitely a stable base note due to the general good price and blending versatility. Just used some in my CP soap along with sweet basil and cedarwood and im excited to see how well it retains the smell. Haven't tried the light version but i am so content with the dark i see no need. Gotta love the woody,earthy and mysterious smell of patchouli!

NDA is the only place I have ever bought Patchouli and I love it, I still have one of the first bottles I've purchased from here 5 yrs ago and it is true, Patchouli only gets better with age, it's deeper, smokier, rich and earthy, I save my aged oil for the special products and I just bought another bottle for everyday blending. It really "fixes" your scent blends and is amazing with amber,vanilla, sandalwood, rose and lavender blends. I will always have this oil on hand.

Patchouli Dark was my first purchase from NDA. My intent was to find a thick, earthy pachouli and this is it! I've put it in shampoo, conditioner, skin moisturizer, my vacuum, in the dryer in place of dryer sheets and my husband practically rolls in it. Unless the composition changes severely, I will not purchase this oil anywhere else. I had no idea except by reading reviews that this oil is purported to relieve skin ailments - doesn't matter, the smell to me is so grounding it doesn't have to do anything else.

My first patchouli and I love it! I can't compare it to light patchouli, but I really love it! I'd much rather use essential oils than synthetic fragrances, but I often struggle to find essential oils and essential oil combos that I'm 100% pleased with. I'm not crazy about either patchouli or lavender on their own, but put them together and it's perfect!

This patchouli is amazing! I love its deep, earthy, spicy, piquant scent, and I simply can't get enough of it. It's great with lavender, and does wonders to offset the sweetness of more floral scents like ylang ylang. I look forward to seeing how the scent matures over time. It's definitely worth getting 100mL instead of 15mL--you'll find uses for it!

I thought this dark patchouli would be thicker, but regardless, I love the smell and it's doing an amazing job of shrinking those mystery balls of I-don't-know-what They are like cysts, I suppose, that show up on the hands and wrists. Overnight one large and rather painful one showed up on the top of my hand, and it was BIG. I immediately started rubbing this lovely scented patchouli, neat on the area, and in less than 2 weeks, it has shrunk to half it's size and is no longer painful. I sometimes combine it with some lavender neat, as I understand that both can do something for these cyst-like creatures that appear on the hands and wrists. I wasn't sure it would work, but seeing is believing. I see there's an organic patchouli out now too. I must try that as well, as order another bottle of the dark, so I can let it age a little. But I'm still waiting on the South African lavender to reappear before I place another order.

A fantastic value for this type of oil! On its own, it is *very* musky and earthy, but in a good way. Though I'll use it straight in my Dr. Bronner's liquid soap, I also like to feminize it and turn it into a homemade "perfume" by wearing 3 drops mixed with either NDA rose or jasmine fragrance oil (2 drops of one or the other) mixed on my wrists, then dotted where ever else (usually neck, decolletage, insides of elbows, under the arms, etc.) I want to smell good. And let me tell you, whenever I wear this concoction, I receive TONS of compliments. In the last month alone, I have given three complete strangers NDA's Web site info so they could order their own as they were that taken by this oil's fragrance.

I have 2 bottles of this wonderful oil. One is a bottle from a year and a half ago, well aged in the back of a friend's pantry and the other is fresh, purchased in February of this year. This Patchouli is rich and smokey. Not quite the gorgeous deep chocolate note that you get from some Patchouli's, but much more murky and smokey. Quite lovely :) The aged patchouli has intensified and deepened both the characteristic patch smell and the smoke. Good, but could be better :)

I love the scent on its own but the beauty of Patchouli comes from its ability to enhance so many other essential oils and make the perfect blends. I am a cold process soaper among other things and Patchouli lends its staying power to blends through that process. I have yet to have a customer with eczema whom did not respond to the powers of patchouli in various combinations in creams and balms. Of course the fact that it is the only oil that I know of that improves with age versus disipating makes it my first choice oil. New Directions does have the best prices for this high quality oil. If I could rate it excellent + I would.

I am a soapmaker and I love keeping my products as mild, natural, and people friendly as possible. I have been a customer for over a year now and have never been disappointed with my ND shipments. The ND Patchouli is sooo nice...I buy them two at a time so I can let it "cure" a bit...like wine, patchouli oil gets better with age. I love the aluminum bottles, the quality, the price....everything about it! I am so glad that I stumbled across New Directions website when I began my business. I've ordered from other companies and have had higher prices paired with lower quality products. I know that whether I'm ordering yummy Patchouli and other essential oils or base oils for my soap, I will always get a high quality product from you guys! Thanks so much New Directions!

As a Patchuli lover I have used ND for years - never found any better quality or price. I use it daily after the shower mixed with Jojoba, Macademia & Linseed oils and neroli 3% (also from ND) as body moisturizer. I have heard comments like "I knew you were in the store because of your perfume - what is it? it smells soooo good." The other day a couple of women stopped me in a store in Guatemala (where I live part-time) and they wanted to know where I bought it. If you ship to Guatemala it would be great - have found some here at a horrible price and quality. Thank you New Directions for your great qualities and prices.
