Product Description -Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin), sometimes called "the scent of the sixties", has a soft, earthy, exotic aroma. In Eastern cultures, it is often used around the house to provide general support for health and to get rid of negative emotions. It is very beneficial for the skin, helping to reduce a wrinkled or chapped appearance. Patchouli is a general tonic that soothes occasional nausea.

Information on harvesting / extraction: Extraction of patchouli's essential oil takes place by steam distillation of the dried leaves, and requires breaking the cell walls by steam scalding, light fermentation or drying. The main chemical component of patchouli oil is patchoulol, a sesquiterpene alcohol. Leaves can be harvested several times a year and, when dried, can be exported for distillation. Some sources claim that the highest quality oil is usually produced from fresh leaves distilled near where they are harvested; others believe it is best to boil the dried leaves and ferment them for a period of time.
