Patchouli Essential Oil {Pogostemon cablin}

Patchouli came into fashion in European perfumery by a strange route. Native to India, patchouli was used as an insect repellent for shipping fabrics. In Victorian England, cashmere shawls from India were all the rage and they arrived with the scent of patchouli still clinging to them. It wasn't long before the aroma made its way into perfume formulas.
