Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) Leaf Oil
Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) is a bushy herb from the mint family, native to tropical regions of Asia. Plants grow in small bushes and produce little pink and white, highly-fragrant flowers. The leaves and flowers of patchouli have long been cultivated for use in perfumes and incense, and can be steam-distilled to produce essential oil. Patchouli leaf oil is produced from only the leaves of the plant.
