Those of us who remember the 1960′s, often associate the fragrance of Patchouli Essential Oil with hippies. It is rich, earthy and grounding. In perfumery and fragrance applications, patchouli is a base note that acts as a fixative and grounds a blend. This plant only reaches a few feet in height, and grows primarily in Malaysia and other southeastern Asian countries. This bushy plant has big, soft leaves and comes from the lamiaceae plant family; the same as lavender, basil, peppermint and rosemary. While patchouli oil has a long history in places such as China and Japan, it was not until the mid 1800s that patchouli leaves first came to the Western world.
