Steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of the plant, patchouli essential oil is a clear, medium yellow liquid with a medium base fragrance note. Its earthy, smoky, musky, spicy and exotic aroma is incense like and instantly recognizable. Its use dates to 18th century Asia, when it was used to scent fabrics for shipping, prized for its efficiency in repelling moths and other insect infestations. Diffuse for a relaxing sense of peace and calm; used in meditative practice to align the chakras, release negative feelings and insecurities and to ground the psyche in the moment. Dilute in carrier oil for use in skin care preparations or as a deodorant.

On the recommendation of the International Federation of Aromatherapists, TruGardens does not endorse taking essential oils internally unless specifically directed and prescribed by a qualified healthcare practitioner who is also trained in clinical aromatherapy. Avoid using during pregnancy, or if you suspect you might be pregnant, except on the advice of a qualified practitioner. Store all essential oil products safely out of reach of children. Essential oils are potent, and a little bit goes a long way. Do not use essential oils undiluted directly on the skin as they can cause irritation. Keep away from children, and do not apply near the eyes, mucous membranes, sensitive or broken skin. Every individual reacts differently to essential oils: Always perform a ‘test patch’ properly diluted in carrier oil to determine sensitivity.

This is one of the best-smelling patchouli oils I've ever used! It's really strong, but not overpowering. Some patchouli oils give me a headache, but this one didn't. Plus, the scent lasts forever on your skin.
