Patchouli Hydrosol

Patchouli Hydrosol smells like a combination of the aroma of the fresh cut leaves and the diluted essential oil. For those that think that Patchouli Essential Oil is too strong, too earthy or too harsh, you might love Patchouli Hydrosol. It is more green in aroma than the essential oil. It has the earthy qualities that Patchouli Essential Oil is known for, but in a much more subtle and fresher way.

Botanical Name

Pogostemon cablin

Aromatic Strength

Medium

Shelf Life

Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications

Little is known about this intriguing hydrosol, but I'm a patchouli lover, and this will surely be a hydrosol that I enjoy working with as often as possible. It's "earthiness" lends itself well to masculine and unisex blends. Patchouli Oil is considered an aphrodisiac, and I see Patchouli Hydrosol playing a part in blends formulated for romance. Julia Lawless states that Patchouli Oil can be helpful for frigidity, and I see the possibilities for the hydrosol potentially helping to calm nerves and inhibitions that lead to frigidity. For emotional and spiritual applications, I find both Patchouli Essential Oil and Patchouli Hydrosol to be especially grounding and calming. For topical applications, Marge Clark of Nature's Gift suggests it for acne, eczema, and as a wonderful toner for both men and women.
