Americans who were part of the “hip” culture in the 60’s will remember patchouli fondly, as it was a common scent during that time period but it’s been used in Asian nations as a scent for hundreds of years. Don’t be surprised if your mother or grandmother recognizes it!
Many love the smell of the CO2 over the essential oil. While we love our patchouli essential oil, we love the CO2 as well. When blending with the CO2, it tends to “stick” a bit more than the oil version so it is recommended to start by using 1/2 of what an essential oil recipe may call for. You can always add more to get the desired results. Patchouli CO2 can be used in exchange for the essential oil. This is a select CO2 and while more viscous than many EO’s, it is not impossible to work with.
We like to use it in calming blends, it can be an aphrodisiac and amazing in skincare.
My mother favors patchouli, my dad likes it too. When I was at Blends by Ruth Nelson, I made a blend for my dad and he said he was going to wear it as cologne. My response was, “Sure dad, if you want to smell like wet dirt.” So, it definitely isn’t for everyone, but it does grow on you and the therapeutic benefits make it well worth its weight in gold. Start with a light hand, and don’t let it go to waste. Neither Dedi nor I liked this in the beginning of our EO adventures and now it is one of her favorites. Dare I say, I actually like it! -Ruth
With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.
