Patchouli Essential Oil (Pogostemon cablin) is also commonly known as Patchouly. Patchouli Essential Oil has a medium-strength rich, herbaceous, earthy-sweet aroma presenting a base fragrance note.

We included Patchouli Essential Oil to the Rocky Mountain Oils Mood, Skin Care, and Sleep collections. Patchouli Essential Oil is a very viscous essential oil that naturally darkens in color as it ages.

Use Patchouli Essential Oil in your skincare routine, or add to body butters and moisturizers to enhance hydration. Patchouli Essential Oil also works well as a natural deodorant.

Often blended into perfumes, the earthy scent is deeply relaxing. Breathe in the rich, earthy scent to enhance meditation or before bedtime.

Loved it so much I bought another as a gift
Uplifting, familiar scent which stands alone as a perfume and pairs well with other RMO's for diffusing. My mom, who is picky with fragrances and who doesn't overflow with compliments, commented how she enjoyed RMO patchouli, so I bought one for her!

I love this oil ! I wore it all through the 60’s
But later was always disappointed because other sellers sold water down products! So gave up wearing. Now this oil is the great THICK oil I used to wear, making me feel different,special and loving my hippy days in San Fransico . Folks either hate it or love it!
A nurse followed me way down the hospital hall just to find what I was wearing!
Don’t change anything about it !!
The thickness is the good quality stays with me over 24 hours??

The Doors the Cream and so on!
Rest in pease , but with this oil we all live on !!
Now Marijuana is legal! Who would ever guess?
And I again found my oil
Thank you Peace !

One of my absolute faves!
RMO's Patchouli is one of the best I've ever tried. I almost always wear it with Blend of Neroli as deodorant, or add them both plus Lavender Greece to my nighttime bath. I always get compliments on the scent when I wear it! It's a wonderfully calming and soothing oil, and especially because I love earthy scents, it's become one of my favorities. Very emollient with Blend of Sandalwood on my face, too!

Love my Hippie Memories!
I love it! I always get so many comments from people saying my house smells so good. I diffuse it because the scent bothers some people when I wear it. I love the diffusing anyway. :)

Is this patchouli oil dark and thick?
Earline G on Nov 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Patchouli is known to have a Medium to Thick consistency with a clear to slightly yellow tint. This can change with age though as Patchouli is known to increase in potency as it ages.

Do I have to dilute this before I put it on my skin?
Debra D. on Apr 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We do always recommend dilution before applying any essential oils topically. When using essential oils topically on adults, we recommend 1/2 tsp of carrier oil for every 1-3 drops of essential oil. We suggest following our dilution chart on the website:


-RMO Team
can you tell me about your extraction processes. Do you use steam distillation and are your oils from the first press?
Deborah D on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We work with farmers and distillers who are experts in their craft and use the most appropriate distillation method to produce potent and pure oils. They use the best methods of distillation for the product they are working with. With the exception of Citrus oils, Ylang Ylang Complete, Vanilla and Jasmine, all of our oils that are steam distilled are technically "1st distilled" or have been distilled for the least amount of time to insure the potency.

If you have any questions on the specific extraction method used for certain oils, this information can be found on the "Facts" tab on the single product pages.


-RMO Team
Do you have a digestible version of patchouli extract?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We do not. Essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. We do not give recommendations for ingestion as the body can safely absorb essential oils by topical application or diffusion. All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic.

If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance. As a company we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so.
