Patchouli had its heyday in the 60s and 70s in the hippie culture. The patchouli scent has been said to mask the scent of marijuana – it can’t. The smell of the herbal fragrance plant is also an integral part of perfumes. The name „Patchouli“ is from the Tamil language (South India) and is derived from: „patchai“ which means „green“ and „ellai“ which describes the „leaf“.
Patchouli oil not only flatters every woman, but also every man. The bitter scent of patchouli oil is not only found in many women’s and men’s perfumes, but also in many skin care products. You can add a few drops of patchouli oil to your favorite cream or body lotion yourself if you want to do something good for your skin. Despite all of its skin-caring properties, you should not use patchouli oil on its own on the skin. Mix it either in ready-made cosmetic products or in a nourishing carrier oil.
