Patchouli is a perennial bushy herb with a sturdy stem, furry leaves and white flowers that have hints of purple. The leaves are put through a steam distillation process to extract the essential oil. Blending Patchouli with Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and Frankincense will fill any space with a sweet and uplifted aroma that is incredibly pleasing to the senses.
